Kayaking Along the Mattawoman Creek with Lessons

Sat, August 18, 2018 @ 11:30 AM to 02:00 PM

Indian Head,, MD 20640.



Learn the thrills and wonders of kayaking as we spend an afternoon exploring Mattawoman  Creek, across the Potomac from Mount Vernon. 

After our introductory lesson, we will go on one of two routes, depending on river conditions. One route takes us out to the mouth of Piscataway Creek, former tribal grounds of the
Mattawoman  Indian Nation. Paddle under the looming ramparts of Fort Washington for views across the wide Potomac to George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. The other route takes us upstream towards the headwaters, meandering through marsh plants into a narrow creek overhung by trees.
