Let's fight for Niagara Falls to become a National Park

To be delivered to The New York State House, The New York State Senate, Governor Andrew Cuomo, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

In recent years there has been a lot of obstruction going on in Niagara Falls, NY to prevent the state park from becoming a National Park. In 2008 Congress passed legislation making NF a National Heritage Area; a few years later another Congressional bill was passed to study the feasibility of making the Niagara River/Gorge area into one big National Park. Efforts have started within the Western New York region to kill the plan to make it a National Park (ranging from stopping construction of a new visitor lodge, residents trying to prevent the Robert Moses Parkways removal, and other forms of obstruction). This petition is to show New York state that these opinions are not just one sided and that people within the area want to fight for our park to become something so much grander.
