The Niagara River Greenway and Rotary are working with local schools and youth clubs, like Niagara Wheatfield, North Tonawanda and Riverside High Schools to educate students about Great Lakes ecology, riparian habitats, invasive species, pollinators, soil and water conservation and more. Equally important, students gain a sense of community, self-pride, and accomplishment working together towards the development and maintenance of our Niagara River Corridor. We are creating life long stewards!
"As educators, we play a vital role in shaping future generations. This is why it is so important to promote civic responsibility, volunteerism, and a desire to make the community a better place."
~ Mr. Sabatino Cimato, Superintendent
Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District

We are working with Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, WNY Land Conservancy, Pollinator Conservation Association, Department of Environmental Conservation, NY State Parks, WNY Prism, Buffalo Audubon Society, Buffalo Sewer Authority, and others to bring in supplemental class curriculum and outdoors place based learning opportunities to youth organizations.
