National Fishing abd Boating Week
"I caught one. Thanks Secretary Sally!"
150 Buddy Bison Students from D.C.’s Brent Elementary School, Washington Latin Public Charter School and Washington Middle School for Girls went fishing June 3rd on the Anacostia River in Washington D.C. with Secretary Sally Jewell to kick off National Great Outdoors Month by celebrating National Fishing and Boating Week. They hooked up with many D.C. “natives”: catfish, sunfish, and perch. What a great way to celebrate the summer!

In October, my friends from Brent Elementary School traveled the Anacostia River in 24-foot canoes brought all the way from Minnesota! Here is what my buddy Jonas from Brent Elementary School said about the trip:
On October 25th, Mrs. Hill’s third grade class canoed on the Anacostia River...In my canoe, I saw one chickadee, one hawk, two cardinals (one male and one female), and many other birds. All of the canoes stopped at the entrance of Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens…On the way there, we saw a beaver named Dillon looking at us, then on the way back, he was sleeping. We came back and took our life jackets off, put them away with our paddles and left quickly. We had a great time canoeing and learned and saw a lot!
