Gowanus Dredgers

Website: http://www.gowanuscanal.org/

This is urban adventure like you’ve never before experienced. That’s right, the Gowanus Dredgers are taking you paddling *on the Gowanus Canal*.

Expect an exciting paddling adventure laced with a good bit of history as your guide Owen rows you through the background of the canal, the way its been restored, and local environmentalism in Brooklyn.

This is a side of NYC you’ve never seen before.


About your host: 

Since 1999 the Gowanus Dredgers have empowered people to care for the Gowanus Canal through advocacy, conservation, and education. We encourage an understanding of the NY-NJ harbor as a resource for recreation and education as well as a waterway for commuters, tourists and goods.
