What are FieldTrips?
FieldTrips are meetups to interact, learn and collaborate in an effort to level-up your creative life.
We’re limiting these events to only 25 people, they’re like an intimate dinner party. Your absence will be felt so please make sure that you can definitely attend if you sign up. Also, we’re in the prototyping phase, so come with an open mind and be prepared for anything.
Thanks for participating! We’re lucky to have you.
Past, Present Future: Understanding the Gowanus Canal (Tour)
October 10, 4:00pm - 5:30pm EDT. Hosted at Pig Beach
About this FieldTrip
A walking tour of the Gowanus Canal and surrounding area. The Gowanus neighborhood originally surrounded Gowanus creek and included a saltwater marsh, meadows and wildlife. Since then, it has gone through a variety of economic, environmental and social transformations and continues to carry the many identities of its past. Now, as a federal Superfund site, undergoing one of the largest environmental clean-ups in the country, the Canal and surrounding neighborhood is on the precipice of yet an other great chapter that will include one of New York City’s next great parks.
Join us to learn about the complexities of responsible urban and environmental transformation in NYC and how the Gowanus Canal Conservancy is helping the city and the neighborhood steward the creation of this next chapter.
Meeting location: Outdoor walking tour beginning at the Union Street Bridge (outside Pig Beach - 480 Union St) (tour will end near 3rd Ave and 6th street).
