Who We Are
Our core mission is to acquire, remediate and manage potentially contaminated lands along Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and the Niagara River and their tributaries for ecological protection and to improve public access to the water and waterfront.
As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, our efforts are intended to help create a truly connected system of public waterfront sites, by acquiring additional waterfront lands to link existing public sites, provide for new passive and active public access sites in underserved areas, and undertake environmental remediation and ecological restoration projects.
Our committees include:
- Governance and Finance
- Land Development, Acquisition, and Management
- Stakeholder Relations
Our Board of Directors
The Buffalo Niagara River Land Trust has adopted the Land Trust Alliance Standards that reflect the Ethical and Technical Guidelines for Responsible Operations of a Land Trust. We continue to work toward accreditation using these guidelines.
