Orchard Park Park and Ride


The Niagara Frontier Botanical Society will host a field trip to a private property on Genesee Road in Colden on Saturday, May 18.

The owners purchased this 111-acre property about 6 years ago. It contains a mix of woods, wetlands and former fields. They are in the process of trying to restore it, with 3,000 new trees already planted. Hopefully the marsh marigolds here will be in full bloom.

The group will meet at the park-and-ride where Route 219 crosses Route 20A in Orchard Park at 9 a.m. Participants should bring their own lunch. Those planning to attend should call Joanne Schlegel at 835-6042. The guide on-site will be property owner Mary Carol Dearing.
