Getting Outdoors This Fall

If you're looking to get outdoors this fall, there are endless opportunities to paddle, hike, bike and spot wildlife in our region. Or perhaps you prefer a free walking tour exploring the history and culture of a local neighborhood with Walking Town DC. You can also give back: this Saturday is National Public Lands Day, a chance for you to join volunteers to create new trails, plant trees and clean up thousands of acres of parkland. Join us for tips on ways you can connect with nature or a new neighborhood.
