A Buffalo Harbor New Year! First Day Hike

As the Outer Harbor continues to pick up speed, in the form of heated debates and incremental victories, it’s time to do more than talking… it’s time to get exploring. To ring in the New Year, The Niagara Region of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation is hosting a series of park hikes, one of which takes place at Buffalo Harbor State Park.

The Buffalo hike is scheduled for Thursday, January 1, 2015. What a fantastic way to explore the Outer Harbor during the winter.

It’s a guided tour, led by State park staff who would assuredly love to answer all of your questions that you have along the way.

The walk is approximately three miles long and is family friendly. Visit the lighthouse. See the grain elevators. Learn about the future of the park and what it has in store for all of us!
