Looking for a fun and interesting way for your family to give back to the community? There’s a chance to learn about our local environment while helping to restore it this Saturday, May 31 from 11am-2pm at the Gowanus Canal Conservancy’s first ever Family Clean & Green Event at at the Salt Lot, 2 2nd Avenue.

Families with kids ages 6 and up are invited to participate in stewardship for the Gowanus Canal and watershed, including composting and gardening. You’ll learn about the Gowanus Canal, how each person can have an impact on the local environment, and what community members can do to restore the vitality of the canal.

There’s a limited amount of space, so RSVP to volunteer@gowanuscanalconservancy.org with your group size and each child’s age. There’s a suggested donation of $5 per family member. Attendees should wear close-toed shoes and sunscreen!
