Canoe the Gowanus Canal with the Gowanus Dredgers

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.

OutdoorFest is a 10-day outdoor adventure festival in the five boroughs of New York City. Join us from May 31 – June 9, 2019 to paddle, bike, hike, camp and more all over the city!
