"Beaver Meadow Audubon Center is a 324-acre wildlife preserve which has been developed by the Buffalo Audubon Society. The visitor center has seasonal exhibits, live animals, a discovery room, and a library. It is closed Mondays and major holidays. This area is busy year-round. In the winter, lake-effect snow dumps off Lake Erie making it a winter playground. Snowshoes can be rented for a challenging romp along the trails. Maple sugar is made in the sugarhouse in early spring. Terrain: Gentle hills."

"Beaver Meadow Nature Center is a 324-acre wildlife preserve which has been developed by the Buffalo Audubon Society with walking trails, interpretive signs, and rest areas. By the early 1900s, beavers were nearly extinct in New York State. A program of reintroduction was begun in the 1930s when beavers were released into Beaver Meadow Creek in Wyoming County. Today they thrive in the area. These furry animals engineered the ponds in Beaver Meadow Nature Center. They built dams using sticks and mud to impede the flow of a stream and form a pond deep enough for their home. Today the dam is camouflaged in places by vegetation. Two beaver lodges are visible near the dam. Beavers are nocturnal animals. They use their stick and mud homes to rest during the day. The best times to spot their heads as they swim across the pond are early morning and evening. The Nature Center is an outdoor learning laboratory. Surface: Dirt trails."

"This delightful preserve trail wanders through hardwood and spruce forests, past glacially sculpted kettle ponds, and across an open field and arboretum."
