Scientists at The Nature Conservancy are finding that helping cities—which will add 3 billion people by 2050—grow and function sustainably is key to protecting nature and the benefits it provides people. That’s why we are proud to host a volunteer day of service at Tifft Nature Preserve, a 264-acre nature refuge dedicated to conservation and environmental education administered by the Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences. The Preserve was created in 1972 from land purchased by the City of Buffalo for a landfill site after concerned citizens recognized the ecological importance of the site and convinced the city legislators to plan for the area’s preservation. Volunteers will assist with a shoreline clean-up of Lake Kirsty as well as the adjacent bike path and help wrap trees with chicken wire to protect them the season's busy beaver activity. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
Bring water, work gloves, bug spray, sturdy shoes and clothes you are OK with getting dirty.
