Solitude is always the best word to describe Rose Acres. This is a great place to spend the day away from the hustle and bustle of life. Once a summer home for Mrs Clifford Rose, Buffalo Audubon acquired this this 53 acre preserve in 1975. Host to a variety of habitats including mixed upland woods, a small stream, and a 5-acre beaver pond, wildlife abounds. This is a favorite spot for spring wildflower hikes as species such as trillium, hipatica and clintonia are easily found. Although the beaver has vacated the pond, the dam is in tact. Recently geocache box was added to the site for the technologically inclined outdoor enthusiasts.
