Last week Nancy and Graham from the Land Conservancy were joined by elected officials to announce nearly $950,000 in additional Greenway Ecological Fund grants to further our efforts to combat invasive plant species and support native plants in the Niagara Gorge.


We celebrated the announcement by presenting native oak saplings to the next generation of conservationists.

Ecological Restoration of the Niagara Gorge

Western New York has a long and proud industrial history. Unfortunately, it has also left our region with many degraded environments.
Ecological restoration is the process of managing a degraded natural area in a way that allows it to function the way it did before it was degraded.
We are excited to see growing momentum for Restore the Gorge and projects like it to restore our native ecosystems so they can continue to enrich Western New York for generations to come. Visit our website to learn more and find ways to get involved.
