Come join DC Net Impact for an evening of networking and education!

We're partnering with our friends at Anacostia Riverkeeper and others to host an event focused on water conservation and preservation. Join us for an evening of networking and education to learn about the Anacostia River and the ocean, the environmental threats they're each facing, and the solutions helping to protect our most precious natural resource - water.

Following a welcome reception and introduction of our Featured Guests, educational river boat tours guided by Anacostia River Explorers will set out from the Earth Conservation Center. Attendees will network with our Featured Guests at the Conservation Center, and then set out on one of the two 30-minute guided river boat tours throughout the evening. Networking with Featured Guests will be ongoing and continue at the Earth Conservation Center as the boat tours occur.

Food and drinks from Chaia Tacos will be served! Founded by Bettina Stern and Suzanne Simon, Chaia Tacos is a female led, female run business specializing in delicious tacos that are vegetable-based, seasonal, local, and sustainable!
