The Western New York Land Conservancy and the Friends of the Stella Niagara Preserve have received a $200,000 challenge gift by a local couple, Pamela and Joe Priest, to help create the Stella Niagara Preserve, a new nature preserve on the Niagara River in Lewiston.

When this $200,000 challenge gift is matched by the Buffalo-Niagara community, the project’s fundraising goal will have been met.

The Land Conservancy is now asking residents, businesses, and foundations to donate and match this challenge gift by June 1, 2015, in order to complete the project on-time and open the preserve to the public later this year.
