Canal Tours

Gowanus Canal walking tours give an overview of the history of the canal and information about its ecosystem and the Superfund cleanup process.

On a 1.5-hour tour, participants visit historical sites, see Conservancy design-build projects and learn about the environmental challenges the canal faces. Tours also cover climate resiliency and sustainability, conservation projects, and local urban plants and wildlife. Tours and presentations are offered to schools, universities, businesses and organizations. Tours are held Mondays and Wednesdays. Contact us about pricing.

Interested groups can contact the Conservancy at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to arrange a custom tour or presentation.
