With Thanks…

As Sam Patch cruises the celebrated Erie Canal and Genesee River, bringing Rochester history to life and sparking new appreciation for the beauty and vitality of this region, Corn Hill Navigation gratefully acknowledges the generosity and commitment of the supporters and partners who enable us to continue our mission.

Donations and collaborations enable us to contribute to the economic revitalization of the Rochester region, fostering the growth of tourism here and educating tens of thousands of area school children who study the Erie Canal and history of Rochester in 4th and 7th grades. Gifts also support the care and maintenance of our vessels, making it possible for us to extend our reach to tourists, area residents, individuals with special needs, and students, many of whom are underserved. For many of our passengers, Corn Hill Navigation cruises provide the only opportunity to enjoy the first-hand experience of the history, science, economic importance, and simple delight of our legendary waterways.

To make a donation to support Corn Hill Navigation’s mission of fostering the improvement and sustainability of the Erie Canal and Genesee River for current and future generations through education, awareness and enjoyment, please contact:
