The Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve is a 131-acre expanse located in Wales, just 30 miles from downtown Buffalo.
Kenneglenn includes portions of the spectacular Hunters Creek gorge, and features wetlands and forests, as well as beautiful views of the gently rolling hills that are characteristic of southern Erie County.
In 2000, the Western New York Land Conservancy, the Friends of Kenneglenn, and the Trust for Public Land mounted a capital campaign to raise funds to purchase the Kenneglenn Estate. Through the successful fundraising efforts of this collaborative group, the Land Conservancy purchased the land and established the Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve.
