SRAC Extends Center Hours

(WAVERLY, NY) The Susquehanna River Archaeological Center has announced that they are extending their hours at 345 Broad Street in Waverly, NY. The Center which exhibits thousands of local prehistoric artifacts and has a large gift shop reports having over 100 visitors in the last month both local and and as far away as Arizona. SRAC's Deb Twigg explained, "SRAC is staffed 100% by volunteers and open five days a week. In response to the numbers of visitors we are seeing along with the warmer weather & tourist season ahead, we decided that we will extend our Saturday hours to 10 am - 5pm, adding two hours initially and then monitoring to see if we should extend them even further."

The Center also reports that they are looking for more volunteers who may be able to help in the gift shop for two hour shifts during the week. Twigg added, "In return for their efforts, volunteers who work at least 7 hours a month get free admission to all SRAC events." To learn more, visit
