The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor is distributing 19,500 free 2020 calendars at libraries and visitor centers along the canal.
The calendar features winning images from this year’s Erie Canalway photo contest, including first-place winner “Tugboat Erie” by Frank Forte, of Little Falls, on the cover.
“The calendar showcases the unique beauty, history and character of New York’s canals and canal communities,” said Bob Radliff, Erie Canalway executive director. “We hope it inspires people to preserve and celebrate our incredible canal heritage.”
