York Joins Gowanus Canal Conservancy Effort

York Labs has joined the team at the Gowanus Canal Conservancy (website) and participated in fundraising at the “Spring Gala By the Bay” on April 19, 2018. Since being founded in 2006, Gowanus Canal Conservancy has been the environmental steward for the neighborhood through leading grassroots volunteer projects, educating students about the environmental issues facing the Gowanus Canal and Watershed, and working with agencies, elected officials, and the community to advocate for, build, and maintain innovative green infrastructure around the Gowanus Canal.

The image below is a vision of the future, which could be attainable considering the people who have put their support behind this effort.

One of the speakers talked about endless testing of “the black mayonnaise” purged from the water way.  York has been working with consultants for more than 20 years and are thankful the black mayo is a thing of the past.

By the way, we loved the awards presented to the three speakers (below)… they could have been designed by Wes Anderson.
