Buffalo Zoo

You can't truly experience the awe and wonder of a living breathing animal without seeing it in person.

The Buffalo Zoo is an experience unlike anything else in WNY. Students and families of Catholic schools can see animals they won't see anywhere else. What you may not know, is that there are a bunch of educational workshops and programs for kids of all ages beyond just taking a walk around the zoo. They offer new on-site school programs for elementary school and Buffalo high school students, the Cub Club Preschool program for the little ones (ages 2-4), as well as Buffalo Zoo seasonal camps for ages 5-12. The zoo is a great place for exploring the science portion of the STREAM curriculum.

Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve

In today's world, we tend to forget the serenity and tranquility of a simple nature walk. Reinstein Woods is a 292-acre nature preserve and education center in Depew that offers students of Catholic elementary schools the chance to become one with nature. One of only seven protected nature preserves in New York State, you and your family will enjoy beautiful paths, and encounter many species of WNY wildlife. They offer several hands on educational programs for elementary school and high school students of WNY. The kids might learn something to talk about this fall when it's Back to School! They also offer summer education workshops for teachers and guided tours. What a wonderful way to spend a summer day with the family!
