Q & A with Jill Jedlicka

Executive Director of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper

Jill Jedlicka

How has the WNY region changed since you started in 2003? 

The community has driven much of the progress on our waterfront. The Buffalo River restoration is an international model and we are once again thinking like a Great Lakes community should and embracing our water-based economy.


If you could have the greatest Waterkeeper mission need met, what would it be? 

Locally, we need to protect the multi-millions invested into the restoration of our waterways. And we need to fight the belief system that water issues are either somebody else’s problem, or the next generation’s problem to solve.


You were on cover of the December 2016 Spree.

The cover photo allowed us to connect with a larger audience about our work and mission. It helped us communicate what our organization is all about and the positive impact we have had on our community for 30 years!
