Inscription.  Niagara's beauty has been an inspiration for today's environmental movement. Early conservationists such as George Catlin and Frederick Olmstead, who invented the concept of national parks, came to view its wonders. Nurtured by such visions and encouraged by the leadership of Colonel Casimir Gzowski, The Niagara Parks Commission established the first provincial park in Ontario in 1885.
The Remedial Action Plan (RAP) today unites concerned citizens committed to restoring Niagara's ecosystem for present and future generations.

La beauté du Niagara est un source d’inspiration du mouvement écologique d’aujourd’hui. Les premiers protecteurs de l’environment, comme George Catlin et Frederick Olmstead qui ont inventé la formule des parcs nationaux, sont venus contempler le site. Alimentée par de telles visions et encouragée par l’esprit d’initiative du colonel Casimir Gzowski, la Commission des parcs du Niagara a crée en 1885 le premier parc de l’Ontario.
De nos jours, le Plan d’assainissement (PA) unit les citoyens qui se sont engages a restaurer l’ecosystème du Niagara pour les generations actuelles et futures.
