Gowanus Canal Walking Tours

 

Gowanus Canal Walking Tours give an overview of the history of the canal and information about its ecosystem and the Superfund cleanup. On the tour, students learn about industrial waste and combined sewage overflow as the two primary sources of water pollution. They visit green infrastructure projects and learn about other challenges the canal and neighborhood is facing, including development, rezoning and climate change. Tour time and content can be modified for grade level. Before students visit we customize learning goals with teachers to compliment science or specific units. 
60-90 min session, Tuesdays or Thursdays 
Fee: $95 public schools 
$150 private schools and universities
