Gowanus Canal Crawl

Saturday, June 12th 2021

2:00 – 8:00 p.m.


This year we’re excited to host our very first Canal Crawl, a fundraiser benefiting GCC’s year-round programming dedicated to caring for and facilitating the development of a resilient, vibrant, open space network centered on the Gowanus Canal and surrounding Watershed!

Mark your calendars and join us on Saturday, June 12th from 2 – 8pm for an afternoon of Gowanus fun! With discovery points across the waterfront and neighborhood, this event will safely offer a field walk, brewery crawl, and scavenger hunt. We’ll be highlighting the past, present, and future of the neighborhood along with our ongoing stewardship, education, and advocacy work.

Stay tuned for additional information and RSVP today.

GCC provides crucial education, volunteer, and advocacy programming year-round. We educate K-12 students in green infrastructure design, urban ecology, and water quality testing; engage volunteers in stewardship work at the Salt Lot and in gardens and tree beds around Gowanus; support neighborhood tree stewards in the Gowanus Tree Network; guide youth in the Green Team job apprenticeship; grow and sell native plants at our Lowlands Nursery, and plan and advocate for reduced combined sewage overflow into the Gowanus Canal and resilient open space throughout the Gowanus Lowlands. To support these programs, GCC holds a celebratory fundraiser each year. One quarter of our entire annual budget is raised through this essential event.
