A News Release from Citizen Members of the Save Thundering Waters Forest campaign
Posted May 7th, 2018 on Niagara At Large
Niagara Falls, Ontario – Volunteers are inviting the public to learn about how to help Save Thundering Waters Forest before the May 8th public meeting at Niagara Falls City Hall.
The Thundering Waters Forest complex is one of the most species rich areas in all of Canada according to biodiversity expert Owen Bjorgan who camped with 5 other people in the forest last summer to help try to raise awareness to save the forest, and adjacent natural heritage corridor.
Niagara Falls City Council will hear deputations and view reports on the controversial Thundering Waters Development, formerly Paradise Project now called the Riverfront Proposal. Community members are hosting a free information session to help educate public on the value of wetlands and some of the challenges presented by trying to develop in, on and around such valuable natural features.
Volunteers will be sharing information for the public from 5pm and the public is encouraged to be in attendance for the 6:30 pm meeting start time.
A two minute overview of some of the challenges the development is attached:
