“Really great paddle tour with Chris, the staff, and intern from Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper. Chris is so knowledgeable about the waterways and the wildlife that inhabit them. I learn something new every time I go on one of the tours. It makes you feel more invested and engaged as a citizen when you realize how fragile our water systems are. Tours with Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper are one of my favorite ways to spend the summer.”
