Help Out Gowanus Canal Conservancy This Saturday!

"Please join us for our next event on Sunday May 23 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. We will be located on Degraw Street @ Bond Street (west side of the canal). We will be cleaning up trash, debris, weeding, pruning, planting, and mulching GreenStreets beds and beginning work on a small sidewalk garden project. We recently received 100+ plant donations from Pleasant Run Nursery located in Allentown, NJ which we will be installing around the canal throughout the season! We hope that you will join us as we work to Clean & Green the streets of the canal and the community...

You must wear closed shoes; we suggest you wear long pants and a long sleeved shirt. Tools and gloves will be provided but if you have heavy-duty work gloves or specific clean up/gardening tools that you'd like to use, please feel free to bring them (make sure they are labeled with your name). Please bring drinking water for yourself. To volunteer for the May 23rd event please email: or call us at (718) 541-4378. Volunteers under age 18 must have a parent or guardian on site to sign a release and available to supervise them (please call if you need more information)."
