Come Sail Away with Me

There are plenty of things to do in the summertime here in WNY. This week the StoneGate Apartment Homes Blog is highlighting several opportunities residents may want to look into from sailing classes to bird watching to attending the theatre.

Sail Buffalo

Living in Williamsville means water is nearby and sailing is a heady adventure. If it’s not something you’ve done before, you can change that. According to their website, Sail Buffalo offers a nationally ASA accredited sailing education, a boat share program, and unlimited access to their sailing community. Their goal is to “train people to be safe, confident sailors, and provide on-water access, continuing education, and social networking to our Sail Buffalo Community!” Visit their website for more information about available classes and sailing opportunities. 

Buffalo Ornithological Society

For 90 years, the Buffalo Ornithological Society (BOS) has been promoting the study of birds native to the Niagara Frontier Region. The BOS region covers Western New York and parts of Ontario, Canada. The society is a great resource for anyone who is interested in birds, from “ the backyard feeder- watcher, the avid lister or the environmental activist, to the dedicated citizen scientist or the professional ornithologist.”  There’s something for every skill level and interest. Regular society activities include programs, field trips, bird counts, research opportunities, and more. Review the website for more information and to become a member and check out the calendar for upcoming events. 

Theatre Alliance of Buffalo 

If you enjoy going to the theatre without making a pilgrimage to a New York Broadway show, the Theatre Alliance of Buffalo (TAB) is the resource for you. Representing more than 20 theatres, TAB is “a consortium of more than 20 diverse, professional theatres that strongly believe in the power, relevance, and continuing importance of live theatre in our hectic, modern world. The WNY region features some of the finest talent that we're sure will entertain, surprise, educate and engage theatergoers of all ages.” Take some time to explore this informative website and choose some shows to go to this summer!
