Youth Stewardship

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 the Great Lakes ecology, riparian habitats, invasive species, pollinators, and soil and water conservation. 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!

We are working with Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper, Citizen Science Community Resources, Pollinator Conservation Association, WNY Prism, Buffalo Audubon Society, Buffalo Sewer Authority, Department of Environmental Conservation, NY State Parks and others to bring in class curriculum and outdoors place based learning opportunities to youth organizations.  For more information please contact:
