ALBANY, NY (AP) - The agency that runs New York's canal system is looking for volunteers to help workers tidy up the waterways and their networks of walking paths ahead of this year's season.
The state Canal Corp. says the event is scheduled for the weekend of April 20-22 along the 524-mile-long system.
It says more than 100 groups took part in the effort last year.
The organization Parks and Trails New York is helping coordinate the project and has information available online.
The 188th navigation season is set to open May 1 if the weather allows.
