Save the morning of Saturday, October 29, to join Earth Stewardship East for a tour of the Anacostia hosted by Riverkeepers.  This free event will be led by people who care about the Anacostia -- they'll share its history, wildlife, and environmental concerns.   The boat carries 13 passengers so please RSVP to earthstewardshipeast@gmail.com.  

The Riverkeepers are willing to take one group at 10 am and a second group if we have that many interested.  We have arranged for this tour to depart from the docks at the National Arboretum which is a wonderful place to visit.  Our own Kate Cummings  is a volunteer there and she will lead a tour of the garden (with particular emphasis on what will appeal to children).  

Please share with friends.  Since we're meeting at the Arboretum, we can have something interesting for everyone who comes, even if we can't all take the boat tour.

If you have questions, call Merikay at 301-926-9774.  

We learned about these tours through the Chesapeake Interfaith Power and Light.
