"Participation by local residents is critical to the program's success," said Janet Kennedy, executive director of Lakes to Locks Passage. "Our goal is to receive nominations from across the region that identify the things people love best, those "must see" places that lead the visitor to authentic experiences."
Local residents and visitors are invited to nominate the landmarks, attractions, activities, events and local foods that define the region's character and distinctive appeal.
Lakes to Locks Passage encompasses the communities along the interconnected waterway of the Upper Hudson River, Champlain Canal, Lake George, Lake Champlain and the Richelieu River. This project has been funded through a Federal Highway Administration National Scenic Byway Program, with matching funds provided by the NYS Department of Transportation.
