Canal Camp at Schoharie Crossing
Schoharie Crossing will hold a one day Canal Camp program on Tuesday, July 26th from 9:30am to 2:00pm where children will explore the site and nature. This program is for children ages 7-12 and will feature a Nature & History Walk, crafts, and games. During the one mile walk, intern Haleigh will provide insights on plant and animal life along the trails as well as how the ecological system around us is impacted by our actions.

Crafts will include a pressing of wildflowers picked along the trail, and the games will be an active portion of the day.
