NATURE CENTER HOURS: Please note that our Visitor Center is currently closed to ensure our members, guests, and employees' health and safety. We plan to re-open the Center as soon as possible. We hope to see you soon and wish you, your family, and friends good health and happiness this holiday season. Beaver Meadow Audubon Center is a member-supported non-profit Nature Center. About 75% of the Center's income comes from program fees, donations, and memberships. The Center is headquarters to the Buffalo Audubon Society. Our mission is to lead and inspire Western New Yorkers to connect with and protect the natural world through bird-focused activities, advocacy, and habitat restoration. Please consider supporting us by becoming a member.
Trails are open to the public, all day, every day from Sunrise to Sunset! While we are all dog-lovers here at Buffalo Audubon, we ask that you leave your furry friends at home when you visit us. Our wild furry, feathered, reptilian and amphibious friends thank you!
