LEWISTON, NY- "John Muir has said that in every walk in nature, one receives far more than he seeks, and I think that is especially true in a place like Stella Niagara."
It seems to be a constant in life, that when people come together for the common good, when they strive to rise above the mundane, great things become reality. That is exactly what is happening these days at Stella Niagara in Lewiston.
The Western New York Land Conservancy is currently in the process of raising funds to purchase 29 acres of pristine land along the lower Niagara River, with the intent to make it a preserve that will be open to the public.
But they couldn't even begin to do it without the support of the current owners, the Sisters of St. Francis. The sisters have been stewards of this beautiful property for over 100 years, but have recently been looking to sell the land.
