OCT. 22

WE NEED YOUR HELP – We are currently addressing a large bloom of Water Lettuce on the canal.  The Water Lettuce has taken over the Oaks portion of the canal and is growing.  Join us on October 22th as we work to remove this evasive aquatic plant that is choking the canal.  The cleanup will start at 9:00 and continue till 1:00.  Meet at the Fitzwater Station on Canal Street.

This plant is very bad for the Canal.

Holiday Luminaria

Lock 60 at Schuylkill Canal Park, 400 Towpath Rd., Mont Clare, Pa, 610-917-8030

Step back in time to a Dickens’ holiday scene, as you enter the beautifully decorated Locktender’s house and sing along with the joyful music played by local musician(s). Partake in holiday treats and hot cider and join in with the Schuylkill Canal Association as we toast our friends with best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season. And for the little ones, Santa Claus will be accepting visitors between 6:30pm & 7:30pm.
All are welcome. A donation of $1 or more will be gladly accepted. Ample parking is available at Lock 60.

NOTE: The event is cancelled only if there is a steady downpour of rain or snow. The magnificent light display is even more mystical if there is a slight drizzle, misty fog or a few inches of snow, truly creating a beautiful holiday scene.

For additional information, call (610) 917-0021 or visit www.schuylkillcanal.org.
