The Niagara Escarpment is the longest continuous natural corridor in south-central Ontario, extending over 1,000 kilometers and housing 1,000 year old cedars, Niagara Falls, and incredible rock formations resulting from 250 millions years of erosion.

Designated a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve in 1990, the Niagara Escarpment is one of the “gems” of the Greenbelt, the pride of the region and a natural feature worth preserving and enhancing.The project creates the Water Research Network and Escarpment Kids to help fulfill the organization’s mission of conducting research and education in the region. Further, the project strengthens this charitable organization, enabling them to address key issues related to the escarpment, while building key partnerships with the public, private sector, conservation authorities, and educators.
