West River Shoreline Enhancement Project Underway
This project will improve habitat value and views of the Niagara River along the West River Shoreline Trail through selective control of non-native plant species. The work is being performed between Long Road and Alt Road on Grand Island, between the West River Shoreline Trail and the Niagara Rivers water edge. Initial cutting and chipping of plants should be completed by early summer, follow up treatments will be completed by late summer and restoration plantings by end of November.
