Several locations in Will and Grundy counties are among the six locations within the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Corridor offering a limited-issue stamp to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the I&M Canal National Heritage Corridor, according to a Canal Corridor Association news release.
The Will County Historical Museum in Lockport, Grundy County Historical Museum in Morris and the Lemont Train station are among the six locations. The other three are the Chicago Architecture Foundation, the Ottawa Visitors Center and the Lock 16 Center in LaSalle.
The association is collaborating with the National Park Service to participate in its Passport to Your National Parks Program.
Through the program, individuals purchase passport books and collect stamps at parks, monuments and heritage areas across the country.
According to the news release, the association hopes the stamp will encourage collectors from across the country to visit locations in the I&M Canal Corridor.
The corridor covers 100 miles of the canal that runs from Chicago’s lakefront to the Illinois River in LaSalle.
The commemorative stamps will be available until Aug. 24.
