ماذا ستفعل

Meet at Bladensburg Waterfront Park 15 minutes before departure to talk and outfit before we paddle a couple of miles down to the National Arboretum (part of the USDA's park and research gardens in Washington, D.C. ). If you are game, we'll take trash bags with us to collect any floating debris. Once docked, enjoy conversation and company as we enjoy the Arboretum gardens. Your guide(s) will also share stories about the Anacostia and its surroundings, including the story of The Peace Tree (1625), which survived 1945 Hiroshima, Japan, and was later gifted to the Arboretum. About 2-3 hours of time in the kayaks. Total experience is 4.5-5 hours. Price includes kayak rental and gear, lovely picnic lunch (at 11:30ish), pleasant company, story time, and peaceful/relaxing sights and sounds. Parties of 5 get the 6th guest free--to qualify book all guests under one reservation.

Geneen Massey and Aaron Dorfman have lived in the D.C. area for more than a decade. Since Bladensburg Waterfront Park is just a 10 minute drive away--and a peaceful, relaxing hour or so kayak to the National Arboretum from there-- it's a favorite go-to for fun, exercise and time with friends.

As an educator, Geneen has worked with students from age 9-adult. She received her M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (2011) and has endorsements in Journalism and Reading (Wilson Dyslexia Practitioner).

أين ستكون

Once we've pulled in our kayaks, guests will enjoy a walk through the Asian collection. Next we'll have a restroom stop before heading to our picnic site to hear the story of The Peace Tree, based on a true story. After lunch we'll visit the Peace Tree and surrounding gardens before kayaking back to Bladensburg Waterfront Park.

A fun experience and a chance to meet other people. We had a gorgeous day for the kayaking and saw lots of birds and turtles along the way. Helping to clean up the river was a nice way to "give" back.

Highly recommend! I was not aware of the state of the Anacostia River, but helping to clean it up ended up being one of the most fun parts of the trip (totally voluntary), and otherwise Geneen and her husband were enormously friendly, accommodating, and had a varied and engaging schedule planned out for the majority of the day. I got sun, food, nature, and good conversation with people from all over. Cannot recommend enough.

We had a wonderful time kayaking with the family and visiting the Arboretum with our knowledgeable guides Geneen and Aaron. We saw the whole experience through their eyes and they were able to pass on their love for nature and for the location, which is surely a must-see in the DC area. Thank you!!!

Our family of five (including two teen boys and 9-year old daughter) loved this kayak+canoe excursion to the Arboretum. Geneen and Aaron were kind, patient and very knowledgeable hosts who shared their love for the area and provided unique insights into the ecosystem and history of our surroundings. Along the way we saw several turtles, egrets, ospreys, many flowers (even a late blooming dogwood) and visited the impressive Bonsai exhibition in the Arboretum. Logistics were a breeze with conveniently provided water bottles and a sandwich lunch at the Arboretum. Paddling the kayaks and/or canoe was a good workout but the pace was relaxed. Gracious hosts, beautiful surroundings and a nice dose of exercise made for a great family outing. Thank you Geneen and Aaron for this memorable trip!
