The Dredgers need enthusiastic volunteers who love the sport of canoeing, the Gowanus neighborhood, or just generally care about supporting the environment and revitalization of New York Harbor. Volunteers need to be independent self-starters and our leadership will help you build and expand your inherent talents.
We need volunteer dock stewards and canoe tour guide assistants to help our free programs from May through October at the 2nd St. Dock / off Bond Street at the Gowanus Canal. You may be asked to help with a few other tasks depending on the event or activity but we match volunteers with team leaders as activities are planned.
How To Apply
We operate public "walk-up" programs Saturdays 1-5pm during the season and in good weather. Volunteers manage the dock and ensure safe boarding and passage of folks interested in a self guided exploration of the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY
