Last year fourth graders learned about how humans can work to reclaim a body of water such as the Gowanus Canal. This year they got to see environmentalists at work. They got to see a floating island launched into the Gowanus.
|Amanda's and Laurie's kids are cheering some rowers on.|
|What are they dragging with them? A floating island.|
|Voting for different features to be placed near the Gowanus using tictacs...green for good idea, orange for so so idea, red for not a good idea. No one wants a parking lot. but playground got a mix of votes.|
|What is the job of the domed sections of the island? Ask a fifth grader.now. Ask a fourth grader later in the year!|
|Will be anchored in canal close to 7th Street near the Smith and 9th Street Station.|
|Thank you Gowanus Canal Conservancy.|
