The Gowanus Canal is one of the most polluted waterways in the country, yet that doesn’t stop the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club from taking to the water. Their mission is to raise awareness and advocate for the environmental disaster area that is the canal, and to provide public access and engagement with the waterway itself. The Dredgers lead tours of the area by boat and on foot, and they offer free paddling on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. Their boathouse and launch is just a short walk from the Wafels & Dinges Factory.
