Gorge restoration planned
From the Niagara Falls Review:
More than 40 acres along the Niagara Gorge on the American side between the Whirlpool Rapids and Rainbow bridges will undergo a three-year, $1-million restoration.
“This gorge is one of the most important places ecologically in the world with the plant diversity that it has, with the fresh water resource that we have at the Niagara River, with migratory bird habitat going through and across the gorge, with fish spawning habitat underneath,” said Jajean Rose, deputy executive director for the Western New York Land Conservancy.
“If we don’t do this work the diversity of plants and animals will continue to decrease and we’ll lose species. What this project will do is restore that natural, high bio-diversity corridor.”
