Working closely with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Niagara Relicensing Environmental Coalition (NREC), comprised of nine environmentally-focused groups, helped to achieve a settlement resulting in a $450 million, 50- year commitment to establish the Niagara River Greenway: a 40-mile interconnected system of parks, trails and conservation areas.

NREC serves on, and helps administer the Greenway Ecological Standing Committee (GESC), and the Ecological Standing Committee (ESC)/Habitat Enhancement and Restoration Fund (HERF) Standing Committee.
