EXPO Gowanus

Saturday, May 21, 2016, 11am to 2pm
Location: 5th Avenue & 4th Street

Join us for EXPO Gowanus, a community event where you can learn more about the environmental issues in Gowanus and get involved in remedies. We’re highlighting exciting projects underway and the creative ways that volunteers, designers, schools and organizations are working toward a healthier Gowanus Canal and Watershed.

Do you live upland from the Gowanus Canal - in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens or Prospect Heights? You might be surprised to learn that you’re a part of the Gowanus Watershed. When rain overflows the sewer system, wastewater from the Gowanus Watershed overflows into the Gowanus Canal--adding 377 million gallons of polluted water into the Canal every year. Learn what you can do about combined sewage overflow, other issues and solutions for the Canal, the Edge and the Watershed. 

EXPO 2016 will be held in the middle of the Gowanus Watershed. Anyone interested in learning more or getting involved should attend this event!
