Only three miles outside downtown Buffalo, this environmental education and conservation site bordering Lake Erie offers hiking trails, boardwalks and a cattail marsh that is great for bird-watching. Snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are popular in winter.

No matter what season, Tifft is an easy and delightful place to view migratory birds and wildlife. Mornings are better for birding.
