The Western New York Land Conservancy invites the community to attend a project unveiling at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13, in the Niagara Falls Public Library, for “Restore the Gorge,” its planned ecological restoration of the Niagara Gorge.
With funding from phase two of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion economic development initiative, the Greenway Ecological Standing Committee, and Empire State Development’s Yahoo! Community Fund for Niagara County, the Land Conservancy has been awarded $2.1 million to undertake a three-year ecological restoration project in the Niagara Gorge – from the Gorge Discovery Center to Devil’s Hole State Park. This habitat restoration project is a separate and distinct effort from the removal of the Niagara Scenic Parkway from Main Street to Findlay Drive, but the two projects will take place concurrently and collaboratively.

He’s feisty, playful, and a bit of flirt.
You’d never guess by looking at 1-year-old Stryker that the Harbor Seal pup almost lost his life.
He was hit by a boat in New Jersey earlier this year and needed one of his back flippers amputated.
Because he’s no longer able to survive on his own in the wild, he was brought to the Aquarium of Niagara.
From WGRZ Channel 2 in Buffalo:
Niagara County and Niagara Falls leaders have received the results of a study about the feasibility of building a new multi-use convention center in the city.
Its takeaways: Downtown development needs to grow to sustain a bigger convention center, and the best option would be to expand and modify the existing one.
“The county wanted to see if this was feasible for Niagara Falls, and it looks like at this point that wouldn’t be the way to go,” said Jason Zona, a Niagara County Legislator.
From Buffalo Business First:
Niagara Falls and surroundings are defined worldwide by just two words: Niagara Falls. But there’s more to the western region of Niagara County, from Artpark in Lewiston to the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel in Niagara Falls. Municipalities include Lewiston, Niagara Falls, North Tonawanda and Wilson.
The article then goes on to list them all and their value.
From the Niagara Gazette:
Those who could not point out Western New York on a map may still be familiar with what are among its chief cultural exports – chicken wings and Niagara Falls.
The two will be within blocks of each other by Nov. 10, when the Merani Hotel Group will open an Anchor Bar franchise inside its Holiday Inn on Buffalo Avenue.
The development was first announced by Niagara Falls City Councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti during a Gazette-sponsored debate at the Main Street public library on Monday. It was confirmed Tuesday by Merani Hotel Group’s Vice President of Operations, Michael Marsh.
