This past Saturday, the Conservancy hosted another GLAM (Gowanus Low Area Mapping) event with help from Public Laboratory and some volunteers. At this event, we took pictures for our seasonal imagery mapping and also began to document the vegetation along the Canal’s banks.
Eymund Diegel led the way, showing us the correct way to set and send the balloon up.
After a test run inside the Salt Lot, some of us paddled off with canoes from the Dredgers and took some shots of the vegetation on the Lot’s waterfront.
Then, the other half joined us on the Canal and we headed up to the Upper Basin. It was a bit windy, but we got some great shots!
We even picked up a superhero along the way!
It was a great day to get outside and have fun. We’re hoping you can join us next time! Float on!
