Join Anacostia River Explorers to learn about the Anacostia River’s history, wildlife, the environmental threats it faces, and the solutions helping it realize its full potential. These free, guided boat tours launch from a variety of locations up and down the Anacostia River, and are funded by the District’s disposable bag fee. Pretty much everyone: tours can accommodate minors (K – 12) with chaperones, the vessel is wheelchair accessible (as are some of the launching locations, see below), and those needing translation services are welcome but should request such in advance. Tours depart from various locations: Anacostia Park, Diamond Teague Park, and Kenilworth Park. More information.
