This amazing RiverPalooza 2017 trip is a partnership between Potomac Riverkeeper Network, the Piscataway Conoy Tribe, the National Park Service, 1000 Friends of Maryland and the Accokeek Foundation. We are honored to have leaders of the Piscataway Conoy tribe provide a pre-paddle cultural history presentation, then guide and provide interpretation of cultural resources along our one-way 3 mile paddle from Piscataway Park’s visitor center to Farmington Landing. Piscataway Creek was home to the leader’s town of the Piscataway at Moyaons, and it remains a special place to the tribe today. This section of the tidal Potomac contains portions of three national trail routes, including the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.

Following your river excursion, you will be shuttled back to the visitor center, where you can journey back in time as you explore Piscataway Park including the National Colonial Farm where costumed interpreters engage visitors in learning about the environment through a historical lens. Meet heritage breeds of cattle, sheep, hogs, and chickens. Take in the sights and sounds of the forest and wetland along the river’s edge as you trek along one of six nature trails where you can catch glimpses of Mount Vernon on the opposite shore. Pack a picnic and enjoy the peace and tranquility this gem on the Potomac has to offer. Piscataway Park is a National Park managed in cooperation with the Accokeek Foundation. The park is ADA accessible, free to the public and will remain open until sunset. The visitor center, farm and interpretive displays close at 4:00. Come help your Potomac Riverkeeper and partners celebrate Piscataway Creek and emphasize the importance of protecting its clean waters!
