This amazing NEW RiverPalooza 2018 trip is a partnership between Potomac Riverkeeper Network, the Piscataway Kanoi Tribe, and Atlantic Kayak Company. We are honored to have leaders of the Piscataway Kanoi Tribe provide a pre-paddle cultural history presentation, then guide and provide interpretation of cultural resources along our one-way 3-mile circular paddle along Mattawoman Creek, starting at the Mattawoman Creek Education Center. Atlantic Kayak owner and naturalist Judy Lathrop, who has a passion for culture and history, will also provide interpretive and ecological education throughout the entire program.
Following your river excursion, you can spend time at the Mattawoman Creek Education Center, which has numerous aquariums so you can observe fish and other critters from Mattawoman Creek, close-up and personal! They also have exhibits on fossils, birds, skulls, amphibians, reptiles, and invertebrates. Come help your Potomac Riverkeeper and partners celebrate Mattawoman Creek and emphasize the importance of protecting its clean waters!
See you on the water!!
