Buffalo’s Urban Sanctuary

Situated on Buffalo’s Outer Harbor, Tifft Nature Preserve is a 264-acre nature refuge dedicated to conservation and environmental education. The Preserve was created in 1972 from land purchased by the City of Buffalo for a landfill site when concerned citizens recognized the ecological importance of the site and convinced the city legislators to plan for the area’s preservation. Today, Tifft Nature Preserve maintains a natural setting. Animals from the entire region take advantage of its ponds, marshes and woodlands. It has become the urban sanctuary many people envisioned more than 20 years ago.
