WHEN: Saturday, April 25, 2009 from 10AM - 4PM

WHAT: Kingman Island Day is a one-of-a-kind event that gives local youth a chance to explore Washington DC’s virtually undiscovered urban parks at Kingman and Heritage Islands, which combined have created a 50 acre playground open for adventure. Kingman Island Day is a free, outdoor event hosted by Living Classrooms. This first time ever event will bring community residents and organizations together to enjoy live entertainment, a free lunch and engage in restoration service projects. Almost 20 exhibitors will offer hands-on activities, displays, and eco-friendly education on the island.

WHY: The event is a unique chance for the community, its youth and partner organizations to actively impact the natural environment while learning in a fun, interactive way. Kingman Island Day will also give community members and elected officials an opportunity to see firsthand the tremendous progress already made in restoring the park, and celebrate exciting future plans for the island and the community.

WHERE: Kingman and Heritage Islands Park, Northeast Washington, DC - located on the Anacostia River between East Capitol Street and Benning Road; Free parking is provided in the RFK Stadium Parking Lot 6.
