Our Trails are Open!
The trail system of Greystone Nature Preserve was opened to the public a month early so citizens can experience outdoor recreation. Two types of trails for hiking experience, both gentle and rugged, please hikers hike at your own risk. With the COVID-19 Pandemic Outbreak, we believe it's super important for everyone to get outside and enjoy the fresh air while they can. For reservations, call (716) 679-6603.
Plant Walk to Welcome Autumn: Edible & Medicinal Wild Plants
Sat, Sept 19th
10am - 11:45am
Admission: $5 -- $10 donation (sliding scale). All proceeds go to Greystone Nature Preserve
It's easy to overlook local wild plants as we tend our vegetable and ornamental flower gardens. However, many of these "weeds" in our lawns, fields, and forest edges have been used for centuries for food, medicine and more. In this leisurely plant walk, Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci will introduce you to traditional uses of wild plants found at Greystone Nature Preserve. Bring adequate sun protection, water, and a notebook if desired.
If weather is poor, an edible/medicinal plant program will take place indoors at Greystone.
Projects Coming Soon
Our little cabin in the woods will be getting a new interior and porch addition.
The Wildflower Butterfly Garden,
we are currently installing a wildflower garden and hope there will be an increase in Monarch butterflies and other pollinators.
