Have you been to the Genesee Country Nature Center?

The grounds of Genesee Country Village & Museum encompass hundreds of acres of woodlands, meadows, old fields, geologic formations, ponds and streams. With five miles of themed nature trails and 175 acres of wildlife habitat, the grounds are open year-round for visitors to explore natural history and the area’s flora and fauna.

This upcoming season the nature center building and trails will be open to the public every Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm for a suggested donation of $5. Guests are encouraged to bring their own equipment to cross country ski or snow shoe, weather permitting (we do not rent equipment). Please call ahead on Sundays for current trail conditions: (585) 294-8262.
