SAVE THE OUTER HARBOR PRESENTATION by Margaret Wooster
to be followed by discussion
This presentation will be virtual. Registration can be found here.
We hope to see you there!
We are privileged to have writer and conservationist Margaret Wooster share her presentation with us. Margaret is the former Executive Director of Great Lakes United, an experienced planner for the Erie and Niagara Counties Regional Planning Board and has taught Environmental Planning at UB. She is the author of Somewhere to Go On Sunday, Living Waters and soon to be published Meander: Making Room for Rivers.
We will learn from Margaret, the importance of the shoreline habitat of Buffalo’s Outer Harbor and the importance of protecting it from development with a park status designation.
A quotation from Margaret: “This is not any old lakeshore – it’s a really important piece of this being the largest freshwater ecosystem on the planet. We are at the point where the pool of Lake Erie funnels into the Niagara River, and that juxtaposition is very rich as a biological habitat – it supports life. This is a really important place for fish to spawn in the whole Great Lakes. The bird migration lives off the fish migration and funnels along the Niagara River.”
