Below is a message from Tara Comstock-Green, Kingman Island Environmental Education Intern, with the Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region about the Kingman Island Day

Hello Everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and extend an invitation to an event the organization I work for is having. Living Classrooms of the National Capital Region (LCNCR) is a non-profit that offers educational programs in which children “learn by doing.” LCNCR, in partnership with the Deputy Mayor’s office of Planning and Economic Development, is managing the parkland on Kingman and Heritage Islands. The park is located off of Benning Rd and Oklahoma Ave in Northeast DC and has over 1.5 miles of trails that is open to the public everyday from 9am to 5pm. Living Classrooms hosts environmental education programs for school groups as well as, starting in April, educational tours and volunteer clean-ups on Saturdays for the general public. For more information, please check out www.kingmanisland.org

I am excited to announce that on Saturday, April 25th, 2009, Living Classrooms will be hosting Kingman Island Day, a special event to celebrate Kingman and Heritage Islands Park and its community. The event will include restoration activities, environmental education, community outreach opportunities, live entertainment, and fun for the whole family! Attached is a flier for the event. We are open to input and suggestions, so please feel free to send me any questions or offer advice. As the event gets closer, I will advertise again.

In order to make the event a success, Living Classrooms is looking for local partners who wish to provide display exhibits or hands-activities as a part of the event. From creative art projects to exciting environmental activities, we are hoping to create an interactive experience for all visitors to enjoy. Neighborhood residents, community leaders, and elected officials will be invited to join in this exciting festivity on Kingman Island and will have an opportunity to learn about your organization. We hope that you will use this wonderful opportunity to reach out and share information about what your organization is doing to enhance the lives of the local communities. We encourage local organizations to apply, as it is important to have a wide array of organizations represented.

If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor at Kingman Island Day or know someone who might be, please read the attached flier [see below] and fill out the registration form [see below]. on the back. In addition, a general flier for the event has been attached [see above]. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail. Thank you for your interest and I hope you will join us at Kingman Island Day 2009!
