Tifft Nature Preserve

Located three miles from downtown Buffalo on the Lake Erie shoreline, this unique urban nature reserve offers 265 acres of trails, anachronistic boardwalks and a 75-acre marsh. This preserve is the environmental education site for the Buffalo Museum of Science and it's perfect for bird-watching, hiking, and family picnics—not to mention snowshoeing and cross-country skiing during the cold winters. In the 1950s, the site was used as a refuse dump, but thankfully it was converted to a nature preserve in the 1980's. Admission is free but donations are requested.

Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve

This 300 acre nature preserve has undisturbed ancient forests that look the same as they did thousands of years ago. There are 19 ponds, marshes and swamps located throughout the preserve. There are still marks visible on the trees from the original Holland Land Survey in 1797. The land was purchased in 1932 by Dr. Victor Reinstein, a local doctor, attorney and conservationist, for his own private sanctuary. Wildlife that lives on this preserve includes beaver, deer, woodpeckers, hawks, and great blue herons. There are also native wildflowers, ferns and fungi.

From learning about various animals on the farm, to interactive activities, educational tours, and fun hay rides, there is plenty that the Kelkenberg Farm of Clarence has to offer. Children can experience what it is like to milk a goat, visit a pumpkin farm in the fall, or hop on to sleigh rides in the winter. Refuel by treating yourself and your kids to fresh, off-the-farm goodies.
