Anacostia River Explorer Tour

Welcome springtime with a relaxing and fun river cruise!

Join DC EcoWomen to learn about the Anacostia River’s history, wildlife, the environmental threats it faces, and the solutions helping to realize its full potential. The guided motorboat tour will be led by Emily Franc, a riverkeeper from Anacostia Riverkeeper and previous DC EcoWomen EcoHour speaker!

Anacostia Riverkeeper is an advocacy organization working to restore the Anacostia River and create opportunities for the community to connect to the river.

This is an open-air boat that rides low in the water, so please dress casually and for the weather. Bring plenty of water, and you may bring snacks as well. Also, please note that there are no public restroom facilities directly adjacent to the boat dock, so plan your trip accordingly. Everyone coming on the boat will be required to fill out and sign a waiver.

Note: While DC EcoWomen does hold co-ed events throughout the year, this event is reserved for women only. Each person must have their own ticket. No unpaid guests and no refunds.
