Cultivate. Explore. Celebrate.

It’s time for Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s first annual Open House! Join GCC at our green and growing Lowlands Nursery (25 9th St) for a day of cultivation, exploration, and celebration. Experience the impacts of volunteer stewardship, community science, and biodiversity in Gowanus at our first annual Open House.


Open House is free to attend. RSVP is encouraged.

Please note that due to the rainy forecast, we have postponed this event to October 21. We hope to see you then!
