State Parks: Meeting Nov. 15 on Niagara River Habitat Restoration

Sat, Nov 10th 2018 07:00 am
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has announced there will be a public meeting to outline upcoming projects related to the habitat restoration of the Niagara River.
The public is welcome to attend an open house and presentation on Thursday, Nov. 15, at the William Kaegebein Elementary School auditorium, 1690 Love Road. Projects will be on display from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. with a 30-minute presentation to begin at 7 p.m.
The projects being presented are at the East River Marsh at Beaver Island, Burnt Ship Creek, Grass Island and the Niagara River shoreline at Buckhorn Island State Park. Funded by over $11 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the projects will help create stronger shorelines, which in turn assist fish and wildlife habitat restoration. In a press release announcing the meeting, State Parks said the restoration "will be a step toward the delisting the Niagara River as an EPA "area of concern."
Work is beginning this fall and will continue through 2020.
