This Friday, August 15, you can eat something delicious and know that you’re helping the Gowanus Canal. The Gowanus Canal Conservancy has teamed up with several restaurants for the second annual Dive In Gowanus, an event that aims to celebrate those restaurants and bring in some environmental and community initiatives to the area.
A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Conservancy, to help fund their STEM-Education Program, Composting Program, and Clean & Green Volunteer Program.
Stop in for a bite or a drink at one (or more!) of the participating spots, all located throughout the Gowanus Watershed area:
