The Niagara River Greenway Staff and Commissioners work to fulfill the Niagara River Greenway Plan through review of proposed projects, stewardship programs, community events, collaboration with municipalities and organizational partners. Our goal is to create a world class trail and greenspace network within the Niagara River corridor that communities can be proud of and cherish for generations to come.

Summit attendees enjoyed their time and learned a great deal about local environmental and sustainability efforts. One student said, "During the conference, I learned a lot of new things about what it's like to work in an environmental field of work. I think this conference was very important and useful for me. I had a great time meeting new people and working on presenting our project. This conference was a great experience and I'm glad I was able to attend." ~ Molly Stewart. A teacher said, "Thank you so much for all of your efforts in organizing this! The kids really had a great sense of pride in presenting their proposal and it was a great experience." ~ Karen Monaco.
Thanks to funding from the Tonawanda Community Environmental Benefits grant, participating students will receive funding to carry out their proposed projects by the end of the year. First second and third place winners will receive additional funds to expand their projects.
Riverside students from the senior class of the CTE Conservation Program proposed to revamp the front landscaping of their school grounds, taking out not so environmentally beneficial and non-biodiverse plants to add a colorful array of native pollinators. They plan to use new technologies and planting methods to make their project a big success!
Students from the North Tonawanda High School Garden Club won second place with their proposed project of "North Tonawanda Garbage Games", a mobile app they plan to develop that will motivate community members to participate in cleaning up their neighborhoods. Third place went to Nichols School, where they plan to spruce up a bike rest stop area near the Scajaquada Creek, by planting native bushes and trees and adding environmental educational signage.
Spring is right around the corner and so are plenty of outdoor volunteer opportunities, make sure to sign up and check for new event listings on "Green Guardians"
