To mitigate the increasing spread of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania, we have closed the National Canal Museum and offices of the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor. Our staff continues our mission-driven work from home. We hope you and yours will stay safe and healthy. Happy Trails!×
For more than 200 years, our region’s story has been one of resilience. In these difficult times, we ask you to support that resilience.
We are losing the revenue we would normally be receiving at the National Canal Museum this time of year. Meanwhile, trail use has increased dramatically—as much as 336% since mid-March—so we are preparing for increased maintenance needs.
But as we have learned from our mule-drawn canalboat, when the weight of heavy cargo is spread out, it’s easy to keep it afloat. We are confident that a broad base of support will keep us buoyant amid these rough waters.
Our staff is still on the job, working remotely to connect the trail, address stakeholder needs, and deliver educational programming. We still look forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the National Canal Museum with you this year and planning for the next 50 years.
Imagine the difference that 14 more miles of D&L Trail in the Lehigh Valley, 15 more miles in Luzerne County, and expanded museum and education initiatives could make.
Together, we can remain resilient and face the future as one D&L community.
