“It’s art and ecology merging.”
So summarized nationally renowned landscape designer Darrel Morrison to local residents Thursday, as he discussed the draft concept plan for the Stella Niagara Preserve.
At an evening presentation held before roughly 100 people at the Lewiston Senior Center, Western New York Land Conservancy representatives unveiled both their vision plan and the concept plan for the preserve.
Included in the vision plan, which included input from the community, were such goals and objectives as protecting and enhancing wildlife habitat; providing public access to walk and hike; preserving the site’s natural attractions; and promoting the preserve’s rich history and natural resources.
“We are thrilled to showcase plans that integrate input from the community, with the creativity and careful considerations of a brilliant designer,” said Nancy Smith, executive director of the WNY Land Conservancy.
