Many people who came to sign the petition to #SaveTheUrger and #KeepCanalBoatsAfloat had seen a letter to the editor in the Times Union on Saturday (thanks, Steve Sevits!) Many more will see the front-page article in the Times Union today, State reconsidering fate of historic canal tugboat, other vessels, but we need to keep the pressure on!
Please sign the petition today! If you’ve already added your name, we thank you, and ask you to send this link (www.preservenys.org/save-the-urger) to anyone who may be interested in keeping the teaching tug Urger on the canal, where she belongs.
We hope you’ll join the Preservation League to help save even more of New York’s historic treasures like Tug Urger. Click here to learn more!
PS: Want to listen to a short interview about why the Urger is important, or see more of the National Register-listed Fireboat John J. Harvey? Check out the videos we just posted!
