Youth Stewardship Projects!

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.

We are pleased to launch an online environmentally focused volunteer database, free for both volunteers and organizations to use.  There are so many non-profit organizations that are doing good work everyday to help protect and conserve our greenspaces.  We rely on them to rehabilitate our Niagara River Corridor and they rely on volunteers! Green Guardians is a platform that will bring together our environmentally focused partners with volunteers who are looking for ways to proactively help keep our natural resources healthy. Create a free account today and discover all the ways you can help.

"Birding", a publication of the American Birding Association, released an article as part of their October 2022 special issue detailing the return of bird life to the Niagara River! This article is a great read, as is the entire issue, and we love to see results from the work of our organization and our wonderful partner organizations being showcased. The article can be found beginning on page 60 of the issue. 

Adopt a Trail sign Niawanda.jpg

The first official Adopt-A-Trail sign was installed in Tonawanda on the Shoreline Trail, which designates one end of the section adopted by the University at Buffalo Rotaract Club and the other side of the sign designates the Tonawanda Rotary section as the official adopters. Over the next few weeks we should be seeing more signs being installed in the City of Buffalo and Erie County along the Shoreline Trail, a total of 11 groups have adopted sections so far. To learn more and to find out how your group can adopt a trail, click here:


The Adopt a Trail Groups have been busy cleaning up their sections this Fall.  Sign up on Green Guardians and join in when clean ups start up again in the Spring.
