Join us in Moving Water as we learn about the Erie Canalway and the surrounding waterways which have crafted Buffalo and the Western New York region into the wonderful place that it is today! These programs will vary in topic, and subject matter, ranging from arts and crafts to social studies exploration, perfect for ages 3-10 and their caregiver!
We’re painting with sea creatures! Participants will use model fish and other sea life as their ‘paintbrush’ to create a masterpiece while learning about the sea life they are interacting with, presented by Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper.
Supported by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and the NYS Canal Corporation
