A boathouse near Theodore Roosevelt Island?
Speakers: Erik Meyers, President, Arlington Boat House Foundation
Rowers slice through the Potomac River’s water early in the morning and late at night as teams practice on one of the best rivers in the nation for this popular water sport. Georgetown has long been a bustling scene for the rowing community. Finally, demand to accommodate more rowing access on the Potomac River has yielded a project that will provide much more than just another boathouse. A unique partnership among Arlington County, the National Park Service, and community organizations has resulted in the plans for Arlington Community Boathouse (ACB). Join Erik Meyers, President, Arlington Boat House Foundation, along this stretch of the Potomac to hear about the new boathouse (first in this area of Northern Virginia) that also aims to create a space for outdoor learning and more inclusive river access for all.
