Lantern walk to commemorate Underground Railroad

A candle lantern walk through the historic DeVeaux Woods State Park will help set the mood for the “Underground Railroad Experience,” slated for 7:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday in Niagara Falls.

Naturalists from the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will present the program, exploring some of the challenges facing slaves on their harrowing route to freedom in Canada, just across the Niagara River.

This program is intended for those ages 8 and older and participants may bring their own candle lanterns or borrow one from the organizers.
