About the BNR Land Trust

The Buffalo Niagara River Land Trust was established in 2012 to enhance, preserve and protect shoreline properties located along the waterways of Western New York. Our mission is to acquire, remediate and manage potentially contaminated lands along Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, 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 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.
