Community Engagement

The Niagara River Greenway staff and commissioners engage the communities around the Niagara River Corridor in a variety of ways. We host bike rides and walks for community groups to explore the Greenway and Shoreline Trail. We also work to spread awareness about how individuals can play a role in sustaining ecosystems. A healthy ecosystem helps to maintain clean water in the Niagara River.

This spring consider planting native plants in your yard to help combat flooding from excessive rain water, which helps stop storm water runoff from getting into the Niagara River.  Native plants are also a great way to create habitat and food for very important pollinators.

We have been hosting a number of bike rides along the Niagara Gorge for students and families of Maple Avenue Elementary School. This particular bike ride we incorporated a visit from the Old Fort Niagara reenactment group to give a lesson about what it was like to live as a soldier at Fort Niagara back in the 1800's.
