Enjoy Nature

There are many ways to enjoy nature on UB's campuses. Whether on land, in the air or by water, there is a space here for you.

Letchworth Woods

Sandy Geffner.

Letchworth Woods is a living forest and recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as a Certified Habitat. Take a stroll through the forest right outside of the Ellicott Complex.

Lake Lasalle

Baird Point.

Falcon Cam


Peregrine falcons regularly nest in the tower of Mackay Heating Plant, on the east side of the UB South Campus. Classified as an endangered species in New York State, peregrine falcons were wiped out from the Eastern United States in the 1960s, mainly due to pesticide residues in their prey. Thanks to protection efforts like the one at UB, NY’s falcons are on the rebound.
