Waterford, N.Y. - The public is invited to pick up a free 2015 Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor calendar starting December 1, 2014 at selected libraries and visitor centers throughout the National Heritage Corridor.
Each month features one of twelve winning images from this year's Erie Canalway photo contest. The calendar captures the unique beauty, history, and character of New York's canals and canal communities.
Calendars will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Thanks to generous sponsorship by the New York State Canal Corporation, we are able to offer 17,500 calendars this year.
