At the end of May TNA members took a guided pontoon boat ride on the Anacostia River. We learned some history of the river and the role it played in settlement of the area, including factors that have now led to its pollution. Both the Anacostia and the Potomac Rivers are vital to the health of our environment as well as providing recreational opportunities so close to our urban homes.
