Thursdays @ Noon: Through The Mire: Environmental History of the Erie Canal

Event Type: Adult Programs
Date: 1/31/2019
Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Time: 1:00 PM
Description:
 The Erie Canal was a tremendous undertaking when construction started in 1817. Humans had been interacting with the geology and environment of the region for centuries, but when the digging of the canal commenced, the vastness of the project and the environment that it would cut through became its largest obstacle. This presentation, given by Schoharie Crossing Education Director David Brooks, will discuss that topic and how people of that era viewed their environment. No registration required.
