Become a member of the Lower Falls Foundation!

Your contribution of time, resources and moral support will not only help preserve one of the nation’s true hidden treasures, it will help make the Lower Falls Gorge a catalyst for community development that can make a major difference in the fight against poverty in Rochester.

The beautiful waterfalls, rare and endangered species, cultural monuments, historically significant spaces, and wide diversity of people from several unique neighborhoods, make the Lower Falls Gorge area a spectacular investment! When you join the Lower Falls Foundation you are not just signing up to receive information, you are enlisting to be a social change agent who will get results.

In addition to receiving a unique thank you gift, access to our e-newsletter, and special discounts on events, your membership will allow the Lower Falls Foundation to collaborate with other institutions and groups to build a coalition of supporters to make the Lower Genesee Gorge a world heritage site. This is your opportunity to make something happen in Rochester that will benefit the entire community for generations to come. Join the movement today!
