The Aquarium of Niagara wants to give back to Western New York heroes. Now through Nov. 17, all veterans with ID are welcome to explore the venue for just $1.

"We collaborated with the Veteran's One Stop Center of Western New York to really give something back to our veterans," Executive Director Gay Molnar said. "So often, veterans spend the special day with family and friends, so we decided to keep the invitation open for the entire week."

On Sunday, Nov. 15, the Veteran's One Stop Center will offer a "Freedom Rock" crafts hour from noon until 2 p.m. Bring a rock and the Veteran's Center will supply the paints and brushes.

Also that day, there will be a special tribute to veterans performed by the Aquarium of Niagara's trained sea lions, seals and trainers. Shows are at 12:30, 2:30 and 4 p.m. During the entire week, Veterans with ID can also receive 10 percent off all gift shop purchases.
