4th St. Basin - 520 Miles made Shorter by EPA Superfund Bulkheads!
Sunday, May 20th 2018 10:00am to 11:00am

Free event but Reservations required. Explore the industrial past and the sustainable and resilient future of the Gowanus Canal with the Department of City PlanningSCAPE Landscape Architecture, the Gowanus Canal Conservancy and the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club.

We begin with a free guided tour of the canal on canoes hosted by the Dredgers with focus on shoreline ecology, then continue on foot to learn about integrative approaches to enhancing waterfront access, managing flood risks, and addressing water quality.  The Dredgers hope to create vibrant, Gowanus friendly public amenity spaces and (hopefully) avoid more cold, desolate, boring and sad walkways when Gowanus is further developed.
