Tifft Nature Preserve is an urban preserve dedicated to the protection of natural resources, scientific research, environmental education and public enjoyment. This former brownfield provides valuable wildlife habitat and needed green space within the city of Buffalo. Major habitats include a 75-acre cattail marsh-the largest in Erie County-woodlands, grasslands, three ponds and a small stream. Tifft Nature Preserve is an important stopover for migrating birds and a nesting habitat for rare marsh birds. The preserve is operated by the Buffalo Museum of Science.
