Mayor Bowser to Celebrate Earth Day by Launching Anacostia Green Boat Program

Wednesday, April 21, 2021

(Washington, DC) – Tomorrow, Thursday, April 22 at 11 am, Mayor Muriel Bowser and Department of Energy and Environment Director Tommy Wells will commemorate the 51st Earth Day by launching the Anacostia Green Boat Program at Kingman + Heritage Islands. In this first-ever District program, “citizen scientists” will enjoy boat rides and collect debris from the Anacostia River throughout the summer. This initiative helps support the Mayor’s goal of restoring the river as a natural resource that our city can enjoy now and for generations to come. The event will include DOEE partners at Living Classrooms.
