Join us for a unique look at Silo City as we focus on natural and artistic features of the campus. In the past several years, major efforts have been undertaken at Silo City to restore natural plantings and habitats, led by PUSH Buffalo. These environmental projects have taken place with Buffalo’s historic grain elevators in the background. More recently, students from the University at Buffalo and other artists have added to the grounds with artistic installations. This tour will reveal the regeneration of this former industrial powerhouse.

The tour meets in the parking lot at the corner of Ohio Street & Silo City, Buffalo, NY 14202. Ample parking is available on site.
