State Parks Strengthens Niagara River Island Ecosystem
There are four State Park projects on and around Grand Island. The goal of these projects is to protect and restore the environmental damage that has occurred over the years that has been caused by both human and natural forces.
Each project is unique and includes the installation of natural habitat features such as rock reefs, submerged logs and other natural habitat features that provide fish spawning habitat for species like northern pike and muskellunge. These projects will also increase the riverine and coastal wetlands by restoring submerged aquatic and emergent vegetation areas.
