The Champlain Canal Bicentennial
The Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership is marking the 200th anniversary of the opening of the Champlain Canal. The six-panel mobile display interprets the natural and cultural history of Lake Champlain, the Hudson River, and the “Great Carrying Place” that connected them, first by an overland route, then by the construction of the canal. The man-made waterbody forever changed Lake Champlain. It spurred commerce and the movement of ideas, but also serves as a vector for invasive species. If your organization is interested in hosting the interpretive display, please contact Susan Hagar at email@example.com.
