Dive into canal life

History comes alive during this program on canals and canal life 6:30-8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, at PPL’s Holtwood Environmental Center

Steve Runkle of the Susquehanna River Basin Commission returns to present an overview of the region’s canal system and its engineering and construction. Visitors will learn about canal boats and their operation as well as details on the lifestyles of canal families and recreation on the canals. Old photos of the canals built in the Susquehanna River basin, along with an audio recording of canal songs and a hands-on demonstration, will complement the presentation.
