Successful plant conservation and restoration is a multidisciplinary endeavor. A plant’s requirements for successful growth and reproduction is just the beginning of the effort. It is necessary to examine the restoration site for its natural history, to examine the impacts of the surrounding landscape on the restoration site and the impacts of the site on the surrounding landscape. It is necessary to determine what can and what cannot be changed for the future. Learn more about the natural history of the Niagara River Corridor, including soils and bedrock, vegetation, and climate and weather.
