April

Pfeiffer Fido Easter Egg Hunt for Doggies

Saturday, April 13th  Program Time: 1-3 pm

The Easter Bunny hiding Easter Eggs for children is a tradition that has been around for generations.  Snoopy, the Easter Beagle, delivering Easter Eggs is a much more recent occurrence.  On April 13th, Lillibridge will be visited by the Easter Beagle to hide Easter Eggs not for children, but for his fellow four legged furry friends.  Bring your dog(s) with your family to enjoy this fun outdoor doggie event.  Walk the trails of Lillibridge with your pooch as the Easter Eggs with dog treats are smelled out of hiding.  This event will be held at:  Lillibridge Preserve, 1974 Lillibridge Road, Portville, NY 14770.  A $2 donation per dog would be greatly appreciated.  Registration is not required.  This program will be canceled in the event of rain.  All dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.

The Beauty of Bats

Thursday, April 25th    Start Time: 6:30 pm Program Length: 1.0 hr. 

While it is a fact that bats rank high on the list of disliked species, it is also a fact that bats are greatly misunderstood.   Bats are not the creepy, scary and vicious animals they are sometimes made out to be.  Folks who love animals know that all animals deserve to be treated with kindness and bats are no exception.  Join us for this entertaining and enlightening talk as we explore the world of bats.  We will discover how necessary, beneficial and wonderful bats are to have as neighbors.  This event is will be held at The Portville Free Library, 2 North Main Street, Portville, New York 14770.  This program is free and open to the public.   Minors must be accompanied by an adult.  Registration is not required.  Bat Boxes will be available at the program for a $15 donation.  Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way funding.  Pfeiffer Nature Center where science, art & nature come together.
