New nature preserve grows on dredge site
Published August 4th, 2004

BUFFALO, N.Y. The Times Beach Nature Preserve will be dedicated this morninag along Buffalo's waterfront.

The 53-acre site includes a former dumping ground where the Army Corps of Engineers deposited dredge materials in the 70's as it kept the Buffalo River and Buffalo Harbor navigable.

It has 750 feet of trails, a bird-watching deck, and an overlook platform. The area has thrived as a sanctuary for migratory birds and provides a harbor of natural tranquility in a busy city.

Next year, plans call for creating four-thousand more feet of trails and three more observation decks.

Erie County Executive Joel Giambra calls Times Beach a first step toward the new Outer Harbor for Buffalo.
