Anacostia River is Launching Point for a Week of Outdoor Fun

Buddy Bison’s friends from Wilderness Inquiry in Minnesota traveled with their canoes to provide an urban wilderness canoe adventure to kids who live near and along the Anacostia River in Washington, D.C. From Saturday November 13 to Thursday, November 18, students from Buddy Bisonschools took their woolly friend out on the river as they learned more about the Anacostia in five hand-made Voyageur canoes.

Principal Kimberley Graves from Jefferson Houston said,  "The students at Jefferson-Houston love being aBuddy Bison School.  At first many of the students expressed fear about being on the canoes but when they returned they stated that it was the best fieldtrip ever." 

The week of canoe trips was designated as a Let’s Move Outside event by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let's Move initiative! Learn how you can move outside!
