The Land Conservancy Purchases The Owens Falls Sanctuary, Protecting It In Perpetuity

The Land Conservancy Purchases The Owens Falls Sanctuary, Protecting It In Perpetuity

Through the generosity of many donors, the Western New York Land Conservancy has now purchased The Owens Falls Sanctuary in the Town of Aurora. The Land Conservancy and the Friends of Jackson Falls raised more than $700,000 over the last nine months to create this permanently protected nature sanctuary. The Land Conservancy will open the sanctuary’s walking trails to the public later next year. 

As the name suggests, the highlight of The Owens Falls Sanctuary are two magnificent waterfalls. But there is more to the land than these waterfalls. Its beautiful hemlock and beech forest are home to migrating birds, breeding frogs and salamanders, and dense patches of stunning wildflowers. The property also includes wetlands and mature headwater forests which are vital to maintaining water quality in the Buffalo River and Niagara River watersheds.

Daemen Opens New Section of Campus

Daemen Opens New Section of Campus

Daemen College formally opened a new section of campus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on Nov. 22 to celebrate the completion of a footbridge that connects with the original part of campus grounds.

Set in an attractive wooded area on the south end of Daemen’s campus, the approximately 30-foot bridge is accessible from a recently installed parking lot located by Alumni House, which opened this fall for the Division of Institutional Advancement, and the college’s Honors House. The bridge spans a small culvert and leads to a walking path behind Schenck Hall.

“This new bridge connects our newest facilities with the rest of campus and both symbolically and physically bridges the new and older parts of our beautiful and growing campus," said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. "It signals a new era for Daemen College.”

At Buffalo Solar Solutions, Old-fashioned Customer Service Meets Today’s Technology

At Buffalo Solar Solutions, Old-fashioned Customer Service Meets Today’s Technology

When South Buffalo residents Tyler and Alicia Uebelhoer decided to open Buffalo Solar Solutions in the Summer of 2015, they poured their personal savings into the business venture and dedicated themselves to providing customers with the best possible service and a pressure-free sales approach. While it took a tremendous amount of effort — not to mention a lot of blood, sweat and tears — to get the business off the ground, the entire Western New York community is beginning to see the benefits.

Now going on two years old, the company no longer operates out of the Uebelhoer’s home. Showing steady growth every month, the employees of Buffalo Solar Solutions have worked out of their new office at 1212 Abbott Road, Suite A, since October.
