Ecology of the Gowanus Canal and Watershed
Presenter: Andrea Parker
Location: Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch at Grand Army Plaza
Our speaker will be Andrea Parker, the Executive Director of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy. She will discuss the complex urban ecology of Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal and watershed, including cleanup, recent development pressure, and the effects of climate change. All of the GCC programs, from manually turning compost to discussing community vision for the Gowanus Greenscape, build towards their goals of an open, clean and alive Canal and watershed. How is the GCC facilitating citizen stewardship of the watershed?
Andrea is a landscape architect with a background in horticulture, with a passion for regenerating urban infrastructure. She has been involved with the Gowanus Canal Conservancy for four years, and she has been the Executive Director for one year.
