The public is invited to pick up a free 2024 Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor calendar starting December 1, 2023 at selected libraries and visitor centers throughout the Heritage Corridor.
The calendar features winning images from this year’s Erie Canalway photo contest.
“This calendar is a wonderful reminder of the extraordinary scenic beauty, history, and recreational opportunities of the New York State Canal System. Stretching across the full expanse of upstate New York, the canals are an amazing asset for communities, residents, and visitors alike. We hope people pick up a calendar and feel inspired to preserve and enjoy this historic waterway,” said Bob Radliff, Erie Canalway Executive Director.
Calendars will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, thanks to support from the NYS Canal Corporation, the National Park Service, and National Grid.
New York State Canal Corporation Director Brian U. Stratton said, “As we mark the 200th anniversary of the Champlain Canal this year and look ahead to the Erie Canal’s Bicentennial in 2025, the annual Erie Canalway Calendar displays the remarkable images and memorable moments of our Canals past and present as captured by photographers, amateur and professional alike. This beloved publication, released just in time for the holidays, showcases sights along the Canal across upstate New York. We congratulate the winners of this year’s contest and look forward to seeing these images each month in the year ahead.”
