Town: St. Catherines

Ontario Nature Region: Carolinian East

What is the Niagara Restoration Council (NRC)? The NRC is a group of people, like you, who are concerned about the environment's health in the Niagara Region. We are work towards its restoration and long-term sustainability. The NRC was originally formed in 1987 as the Public Advisory Committee (PAC) to the Niagara River Area of Concern process and in 1998 incorporated to become the organization that it is today.

The mandate of the Niagara Restoration Council is "To re-establish, protect and maintain the integrity of the Niagara River Ecosystem." To achieve this mandate the NRC's focuses include: Ecosystem Improvement - the NRC seeks to improve the ecological health of areas that have been disturbed or more seriously harmed by either human or natural causes through on the ground projects.

Currently, the NRC is running the Niagara River Area of Concern Fish Barrier Removal Project, restoring lost fish habitat to migratory species, and the Restoring Buffers to Niagara's Rivers Project, a community involvement stream buffer planting project. The other focuses of the NRC are Environmental Education, we believe that it is only through education that long lasting changes can be made; and Awareness, the NRC makes comments and voices an environmental opinion on many of the problems within the Niagara Region. While working on all of these projects we like to have fun and promote a sense of community.
