The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club is a small group of community and environmental activists who, by regularly canoeing through the E.P.A. superfunded Gowanus Canal, raise awareness on the heavily polluted state of the water stream, and spark conversations on how to fix it. Learn more about the club in this video from our friends at BRIC TV.
Formed in 1999, the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club was named for its purpose: to encourage the much needed dredging of the Gowanus Canal. Today, the organization is still pushing the EPA cleanup to continue, demanding safety ladders throughout the canal, and raising awareness to the state of the canal, and providing waterfront access and education to the public.
