Gulf Wilderness Park  (Lockport)  This park is located in a unique area where Eighteen-mile Creek traverses the Niagara Escarpment.   The limestone forest community supports a few species uncommon to Western New York, such hackberry and prickly-ash.  The park is best known for its diverse and abundant spring wildflower flora.  Species that occur in abundance here include cut-leaved toothwort, spring cress, blue cohosh.  The park is also a good location for observing migrating songbirds, especially during May, as well as resident birds such as the eastern screech owl.  Rock talus occurs throughout the park, providing excellent cover for the red-backed salamander and eastern garter snake.
