The 25th Penn Dixie Nature Cruise will take place on Saturday, Sept. 12. Boarding will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the entrance to the Erie Basin Marina, 329 Erie St.,  Buffalo. Departure is promptly at 9 a.m. and return to the dock is at noon.

The cruise will provide views from the harbor, Lake Erie, the Niagara River, the locks, and the Black Rock Canal as the group travels along the Buffalo waterfront. This will be a great opportunity to view the 410-foot tall wind turbines that have been installed on the former Bethlehem Steel site and other changes being made on the Buffalo waterfront. Experts in aquatic biology, birding, fisheries, and geology will provide information on the formation of the lake and river, the fishing, birding opportunities, and features along the waterfront.

The cost of the cruise for Penn Dixie members is $27 for adults and $24 for children. The cost for non-member adults is $30, and for non-member children, $27. Registration forms and information may be downloaded here or call 627-4560.
