Get Involved:What you can do Do your part to ensure that the unique local, state, and national assets of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor are enjoyed and protected for everyone.
Explore. Visit a section of the canal you’ve never seen for your next boating, biking, fishing, or vacation adventure.
Learn. Seek out one of the many national and state historic sites and museums throughout the Canalway Corridor to learn more about its history and predominance in building New York State.
Enjoy. Celebrate our heritage at festivals and events taking place along the canal this year.
Clean up! Litter and trash dumping spoil the natural beauty and health of the canal, and make it less attractive to visitors. Be sure to use recycling and trash receptacles when visiting the Canalway Corridor.
Be vocal. Participate in public planning forums in your community to advocate for Canalway Corridor protection and enhancements.
Volunteer. Get involved with local community organizations that promote heritage tourism and historic preservation. Or contact us to inquire about becoming an Erie Canalway VIP (Volunteer in Parks).
