Join us for a talk by Doug Tallamy: A Case for Native Plants
Award-winning author Doug Tallamy will give a talk about the critical importance of native plants for the ecology and vibrancy of our region. “A Case for Native Plants” will be held at 7 PM on Friday, March 16 at the Niagara Power Vista.
Dr. Tallamy’s research and books have sparked a national conversation about the importance of using native plants in our landscapes to reverse wildlife loss and to make our communities healthier. After decades of intense sprawl, our natural places are shrinking and becoming more fragmented. Native plants feed our wildlife, clean our water, support the pollinators that put food on our tables, and are beautiful too.
While the event is free, space is limited, so please register by Thursday, March 15. Guests are encouraged to arrive at 6pm for a book signing by Doug Tallamy and to explore all the Power Vista has to offer.
DL&W Trail Open House
You are invited! Join the Land Conservancy from 6-8 PM on Wednesday, March 21, for a presentation about the DL&W Trail.
Since the fall of 2017, the Land Conservancy has been meeting with neighbors and community leaders to have conversations about what matters most to them. We are also working with local officials and organizations to create new partnerships as the plan develops.
During this Open House you will learn about what we’ve heard from neighbors and community members, as well as our early thoughts and plans for the corridor. We will have several feedback stations so you can let us know what you think. Come be part of an important and inspiring project for Buffalo!
While the event is free, space is limited, so please register by Tuesday, March 20. We look forward to seeing you there!
Partner Spotlight: BN Waterkeeper
Through the leadership of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, with the support of the Land Conservancy, 30 acres of floodplain forest along Cayuga Creek in the Town of Niagara was permanently protected. The Weber family donated this special property to the Town. In the coming months, Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper will lead work to help mitigate flooding impacts to neighboring communities and restore the ecological function of the stream corridor. This exciting project will be good for the entire Niagara River.9
