Old Bailey Woods – The Old Bailey Woods site is located on the left bank of the Buffalo River, downstream of the confluence of the Buffalo River and Cazenovia Creek, and is accessible from land via Bailey Avenue. The project area is composed of two parcels, one owned by the City of Buffalo and one owned by the Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency.  This project will work to preserve Old Bailey Woods, one of the last remnant lowland floodplain forests in the Buffalo River AOC. Restoration of the area will provide a minimum of 805 linear feet of shoreline habitat and 3.31 acres of riparian buffer habitat restoration and enhancements, representing approximately 4.03% of the shoreline restoration goal for the AOC.
