Remind me some day to tell the story of Schuyler Meyer, who is credited with starting Urger’s educational program back in 1991. As of today, the season is over. Over 4500 NYS fourth graders have experienced the “Urger program” this season. That number and more have visited the 113-year-old vessel in festivals and other contexts along the Canal, now recognized as a very large location on the National Register of Historical Places.
