Summer fun!

This place offers the peaceful solitude despite of being close to a major thruway. If you are into bird watching or fishing, this place is a treat!

This is a wonderful wildlife preserve very close to downtown. The area was an industrial area and the transformation is wonderful to see. It is a model for other cities who wish to utilize abandoned shuttered industrial acreage. The visitor center is a very welcoming space and it has a great deal of easily read information about how this wildlife... More

What a find, right in Buffalo. We saw four green herons and numerous shore birds among many others, along with deer, while we walked a few of the trails. Highly recommended. Nature center closes at 4:00 but trails stay open until dusk.

This is truly a jewel of Buffalo where you can get out into nature and be right in the city. Take a hike, fish, spend a day, learn something new about nature, drop in for lunch, there's so much to do and something for everyone and its different every time you go. For nature lover, novice, birdwatcher, well versed in... More

We hiked in the early AM and were visited by many birds, water foul, deer, turtles chickadees that ate out of your hand with sunflower seeds and just the greatest hidden gem in Buffalo. Most Buffaloians have never even been here!!

My son and I went here for a birthday party. They did a great job with the party. They had set tables up and had coloring pages for the kids. They have different birthday party themes and they started off with a story before they went outside. Once we got outside, we went up on a trail to start building... More
