VMLS via Podcast – Historic Welland Canals Mapping Project

Promotional Graphic for the lecture on March 30, 2021

We are thrilled to bring our hit Virtual Museum Lecture Series to the podcast. Now, with over 40 lectures on YouTube, we’re so happy to bring the lecture audio to the podcast format so that more of you can enjoy these fascinating stories and join in on the historical adventures.

Coming up this winter, we’ll release the audio for lectures on topics such as the history of the largest cemetery here in Niagara, Ontario’s racially segregated schools, the Third Welland Canal, and much more.

More lectures are headed your way this winter over on YouTube. You can join in Live! or catch the lectures our playlist afterwards. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel – you’ll find us at St. Catharines Museum – so you don’t miss any of the fun. For more information on the lecture series, the impressive guest list, and lecture topics please visit stcatharinesmuseum.ca.

Today’s lecture, originally presented on March 30, 2021, was presented by special guest Colleen Beard, map librarian emeritus at Brock University. Colleen’s Historic Welland Canals Mapping Project has mapped the routes of the three early Welland Canals and her presentation takes us through her website.
