Western New York is a wonderful place to live. It’s home to a vast amount of fresh water, our forests teem with incredible wildlife, and we are the stewards of some of the world’s most fertile soils. But the region has also witnessed tremendous sprawl over the past fifty years, resulting in the development of large stretches of land. 

Thankfully, communities across the country are beginning to recognize the critical importance of saving our forests, meadows, wetlands, lakes, and rivers for the health and wellbeing of every living creature on the planet. Working together, we can save land for future generations, including here in Western New York.

We are thrilled to host world-renowned author Tony Hiss, one of the strongest advocates for land protection in the United States, to discuss his seminal book Rescuing the Planet: Protecting Half the Land to Heal the Earth. 


Join us at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 25th at the Montante Cultural Center on the campus of Canisius College for this unique opportunity to hear from one of the most important conservation writers working today.
