FAMILY FUN: Wildlife Festival being held Saturday and Sunday

Niagara Gazette — The annual Wildlife Festival, one of the area's most popular family-oriented events, is being held Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22 and 23, at the New York Power Authority Visitors Center.

The outing at the Power Vista and surrounding grounds has drawn thousands of visitors during the past 26 years.

Again this year, the Niagara County Federation of Conservation Clubs, a major co-sponsor of the event, will be  operating its rifle range. In addition, about 50 other exhibitors will be participating.

Among others returning this year: Carmen Presti, a leading Western New York naturalist, with his Primate Sanctuary from Niagara Falls; Jeff Musial from "Nickel City Repitles and Exotics, with presentations about reptiles, mammals and birds from around the world; the Niagara River Anglers Association with their fishing pond; interpretive nature programs conducted by the New York State Department of Parks and Recreation; the Niagara River Iroquois Dancers; and Mike Randall of Randall & Friendsm providing funny, fast-paced shows including magic, ventriloquism and audience participation on both days.

A festival spokesman said children aged 15 and younger may participate in the Wildlife Festival Kids Fishing Derby during the event.

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
