Some people might think of the White House as the heart of the Washington, DC region. However, to Active Nature's guides, the region's heart is the rushing Potomac River and its surrounding parks. It's where they teach paddle sports such as kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding.
The team draws from diverse backgrounds—some have even paddled in the Olympics for the U.S. and other countries—but they all believe that anyone can learn to paddle. The keys, which they emphasize whether they're training newbies or Active Nature's competitive paddling team, never change: technical skill, confidence, and river knowledge. (The latter means not just navigating the river adeptly, but treating it well, with sustainability in mind.)
