The Canal Corridor Association, a 501(c)3 non profit, preserves history, protects nature and open space, and creates destinations where people can learn and have fun in the I&M Canal National Heritage Corridor from Chicago to LaSalle/Peru.
The Canal Corridor Association is designated by Congress as the local coordinating entity for the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor, the nation’s first national heritage canal.
The LaSalle Canal Boat and Lock 16 Visitor Center is owned and managed by CCA.
