Niagara County Community College   (Town of Cambria)  The NCCC campus supports a diversity of plant communities and therefore provides habitat for a variety of plants and animals.  Mature woodland in the northeast corner of the college property supports spring wildflowers mid-April through mid-May), migrant songbirds (May and September), forest nesting birds (May through August), and owls (year-round).  Brush areas provide habitat for birds that typically nest in these habitats, such as the gray catbird, brown thrasher, and willow flycatcher.   A successional old field community along the eastern property boundary supports grassland birds such as the bobolink, eastern meadowlark, and Savannah sparrow.   Other open habitats within the college campus provide good opportunities for observing eastern bluebirds along the bluebird nest box trail that has been long established within the property.
