Mission Statement

Our mission is to facilitate the environmental health of the Gowanus Canal and its watershed by serving as a trusted resource and guiding the vision and transformation of the watershed with respect for the history of the community.


The Gowanus Canal Conservancy is a Brooklyn-based, non-profit organization that serves as an environmental steward to the Gowanus Canal and it's watershed. Our vision is focused on creating a clean and accessible canal and a resilient and healthy watershed for the community to understand, enjoy, and appreciate for generations to come.

We organize monthly Clean & Green and Composting volunteer events, in which volunteer-based environmental stewardship projects are developed and implemented.

My friend and I had so much fun doing this! Our group leader was very outgoing and we had a good time getting to know each other while getting work done. The residents were a huge help too and pointed us in the direction of more trees and brought out some more for us to collect. The fact that so many people thanked us for our work was very rewarding. It was raining quite a bit that day, but I was totally fine with it! Thanks for the great experience. My friend, Chadia and I would love to work with you guys again in the future!
