Join us to experience the Buffalo Lighthouse built in 1833 and hear about its recent restoration. You will be able to climb to the top, a rare opportunity that isn’t open to the public very often! Enjoy the incredible view of the Buffalo Harbor, boats sailing on Lake Erie and Downtown Buffalo as we learn about the important role this lighthouse has played in the history of Buffalo. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes for the climb to the top.
Registration at 5:15 PM and the tour will begin at 5:30, rain or shine.
We are looking for our next round of candidates! The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 3, 2019 at 4:00 pm. Click the link below for additional details:
