Sustainability in Action

altSaturday, August 5, 10am-3pm

The tour will see progressive gardening and farming activities at the community-integrated Massachusetts Avenue Project, PUSH’s 14th-Street Garden, and the Broadway Market Rooftop Garden.

We’ll visit the sites of successful recoveries of land and water resources along our waterfront: Wilkeson Pointe, Mutual Riverfront Park, and Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper's RiverBend project.

The tour will also stop at the Urban Habitat Project at the Central Terminal and the BNMC bioretention cell near downtown Buffalo, both of which tackle specific problems with innovative solutions.

These eight prominent sites were chosen for their strong environment-friendly approaches. We’ll hear from the project leader at each site about the impact of the work on a renewed Buffalo.

Cost: $35, includes round-trip transportation, tour guides, tip, and a box lunch.

Transportation: Via non-air-conditioned school bus with two rest stops taken during tour.

Pick-up: Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus parking lot, 589 Ellicott Street at Goodell Street, with free parking onsite.
