Friday, January 1st Hike Start Time: 10 am    Hike Length: 1 hr.

“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass.  It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” 

I think we can all agree that putting 2020 behind us will bring a collective sigh of relief.  Happily, we have hope and opportunity ahead in 2021.  What better way to celebrate the beginning of a new year than to spend a little time in nature.  If you would like to share in a bit of safe, communal inspiration, then join us on our 6th annual winter’s day hike at Pfeiffer Nature Center!  This hike will take place at the Lillibridge Preserve, 1974 Lillibridge Rd., Portville.  The hike is free to the public but pre-registration is required. Because of COVID safety measures, social distancing and masks covering your mouth and nose are required.  Group sizes will be limited to 10 participants.  Reserve your space(s) by e-mailing:  naturalist@pfeiffernaturecenter.org., or calling the office 716-933-0187 by Tuesday, December 29th.  Please include a contact phone number with your reservation.  You will be contacted to confirm your reservation.  In the event of freezing rain or extreme temperatures, this program will be canceled.  If the weather appears questionable, look for a cancellation notice on the top of our website home page.  Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way Funding.

Clear your mind and warm your heart by spending some time out in nature!  Blue skies and snow covered trails are the perfect setting for a hike about Lillibridge.  Bring your own snowshoes or borrow a pair of traditional, wooden bear paw snowshoes from us when you visit Pfeiffer Nature Center’s winter wonderland.  This hike is for both the novice and advanced alike.  If there is no snow, join us for a winter stroll along the trails through field and forest.  The program will be canceled if we are experiencing extreme weather conditions. This hike will take place at the Lillibridge Preserve, 1974 Lillibridge Rd., Portville NY.  The event is free to the public but pre-registration is required.  Because of COVID safety measures, social distancing and masks covering your mouth and nose are required.  Group sizes will be limited to 10 participants.  Reserve your space(s) by e-mailing:  naturalist@pfeiffernaturecenter.org., or calling the office 716-933-0187 by Tuesday, February 2nd.  Please include a contact phone number with your reservation and let us know if you would like to borrow snowshoes and the number of pairs.  You will be contacted to confirm your reservation.   The traditional snowshoes are one size fits all and are recommended for ages 13 and up.  Minors must be accompanied by an adult.  Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way funding.  Pfeiffer Nature Center where science, art & nature come together.
