Join us in Moving Water every Wednesday from 10 AM – Noon 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.
Supported by the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor and the NYS Canal Corporation
