The Times Beach Nature Preserve is a city of Buffalo owned nature preserve, managed by Erie County and located on the shores of Lake Erie and the Niagara River in downtown Buffalo N.Y.
The Friends of the Times Beach Nature Preserve came together in the early 1990's as the Times Beach Oversite Committee. They helped to establish the nature preserve which was created formally in 2006.
In 2008 the Friends group was established by the Oversite Committee to continue citizen advocacy and engagement of the publicly owned and managed preserve.
