Rushing Stream Wildlife Sanctuary


Acquired by the Buffalo Audubon Society in 1968, Rushing Stream Wildlife Sanctuary is a 50-acre refuge located about 9 miles south of Forestville, New York, in Chautauqua County.   The sanctuary includes some upland areas where hemlock, beech, birch and maple trees flourish, as well as some marshy wetlands where birds and wildlife are found.   Pileated Woodpeckers can be found there, as well as Great Blue Herons.  The refuge also offers a streambank habitat and some small ponds.  The entrance is along the northern edge of Cassadaga Road.
