The WNY Land Conservancy has identified four priority conservation areas within the Niagara River Greenway. These new areas to protect include important natural lands, such as forests, meadows, streams, and wetlands. These lands provide ecosystem services by cleaning our water, cleaning our air, and reducing flooding. They support rare and protected plants and animals. They can also provide low-impact recreation like hiking, kayaking, and cross-country skiing. The Land Conservancy only protects land in partnership with willing landowners and it is always voluntary.
