Celebrate World Ocean Day!

 Self-led Activity beginning Friday, June 4th through the month of June 

June 8th is World Ocean Day and it is an International Day of celebration.  Proposed in 1992 by Canada’s International Centre of Ocean Development and the Ocean Institute of Canada at a UN Earth Summit, the day was created to honor the oceans which connect us all and give us life.  Our planet is covered by nearly 71% water, and of all of this water, about 96.5 percent of that water is Ocean.  No matter where we live on Mother Earth, we all need a healthy ocean to survive.  By protecting our oceans, we protect ourselves.  Take a walk with us along the interpretive trail to learn a little about a few of the fascinating creatures that call the ocean home as well as things that you can do to help support our watery world and the creatures that live within. Begin this walk at the Lillibridge Kiosk where a map will be available to guide you. This walk will be available through the month of June.  The Lillibridge Property is located at 1974 Lillibridge Road, Portville, NY.  We would love for you to share pictures and let us know how you enjoyed your visit by e-mailing naturalist [at] pfeiffernaturecenter [dot] org Enjoy the wonderful outdoors! Pfeiffer Nature Center is supported by United Way funding.  Pfeiffer Nature Center where science, art & nature come together.

Miner's Cabin built by Gold Miner

Miner’s Cabin in Franklinville was built by a miner that returned home after making it good during the gold rush era of the west coast. The building is not a cabin either but a three story house of Queen Anne design.
