WNY PRISM is excited to announce the reboot of the Rails to Trails project in conjunction with the Town of Tonawanda. Launched in 2020 and postponed due to the pandemic, the project will use the power of volunteers to map and manage invasive species along the Rails-to-Trails pathway.
This pathway is a valuable community resource that makes outdoor recreation readily available to community members, but invasive species along the trail threaten to degrade it.
