Learn more about the Feeder Canal Alliance and our upcoming educational programs at a FREE Community Fun event from 11 AM – 2 PM on June 10th in Haviland Cove Park in Glens Falls – featuring the Amorak Youth Drumming Group and Rock Painting for Kids.
We’re also kicking off a Virtual Canoe & Kayak Race that you can participate in from June 10- July 10, 2023 (due to impending construction on the Rt 254 bridge). This is also FREE to participate in, but any size donation is welcomed.
Glens Falls Brewfest and Taps & Apps are about much more than beer. It is about making the community a better place. All proceeds benefit Adirondack Theatre Festival and Feeder Canal Alliance. These events have contributed over $200,000 to the community.
The water level is up, so it’s a great time to canoe or kayak in the Feeder Canal! Most of the Towpath Trail is open, but there is a small section that will be temporarily closed from the crosswalk on Rt 32 near Lehigh Cement to Warren Street, Hudson Falls through September 2023. The detour will take you on Boulevard Avenue.
A pedestrian bridge will be built over the Feeder Canal at Murray St. and a new bridge will be built to connect the trail to Water St. Detours will be posted on the trail.
