Local Companies Support Reinstein Woods’ Programs!

November 14, 2017
Friends of Reinstein would like to extend a special thank you to:

 

Student moving water on Enviroscape

Students use an Enviroscape to explore how water travels.

 

Ingram Micro (Williamsville Office) for donating funds to purchase a new Enviroscape, a table-top watershed model used to educate students about where our drinking water comes from and where our sewage goes. Classes that participate in the Day in the Life of the Buffalo River program will receive a free in-class presentation using the model.  The model can even demonstrate a combined sewer overflow(CSO), a water quality issue of great importance in Western New York.

Bond, Schoeneck & King Buffalo employees for their “jeans day” donation. The funds will be used to purchase native plants and related supplies as part of the habitat improvement project that aims to remove invasive common reed plants and replace them with native species.

Curbell Plastics employees who helped remove  invasive species this summer in Reinstein Woods as part of the United Way Day of Caring. The group removed invasive common reed from two sites, as well as purple loosestrife from a wetland and ferns that were overtaking a deer exclosure.
