Niagara Glen Action Plan and Volunteer Weekend
Niagara Falls, ON – The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) will be hosting a Niagara Glen Roundtable on the future of the Niagara Glen followed by a Green Symposium. NPC is giving first consideration to the Niagara Glen as a means to promote continuing education, access control and visitor activity monitoring for this unique ecosystem.
NPC will be hosting several important upcoming environmental events:
Niagara Glen Green Plan Events Friday, September 12 through Sunday, September 14
Volunteer Involvement: Building on last year’s successful effort of Ontario Nature (Federation of Ontario Naturalists) working with Niagara Parks staff and other partner organizations at Queenston Heights Forest and the Niagara Glen, we envision multiple activities being undertaken, such as Niagara Glen trail improvements, trail marking, and continuation of invasive species removals at Queenston Heights Forest. This work is dependent on the number of volunteer participants who register to work along with NPC staff on these projects.
