$20 for Cherry Blossom Benefit Boat Tour for Two ($40 Value)

The 50-minute cherry blossom boat tour travels down the Potomac and Anacostia rivers. Up to 26 passengers at a time can snap photos of the rare trees and learn about the history of the National Cherry Blossom Festival as they sip BYOB beverages. Docked at Diamond Teague Park near the Navy Yard Green Line station, the boats will set sail from Tuesday–Sunday until April 29, running four trips each weekday and eight trips on weekends. All proceeds from the tours will go to scholarships for underserved children to attend the organization’s experiential learning program, All Hands on Deck.

Living Classrooms Foundation

Since 1985, the Living Classrooms Foundation has provided educational programs that instruct young students and prepares adults for careers under the banner of a simple philosophy: learning by doing. The organization caters to underserved populations in the Greater DC–Baltimore area, educating students through fieldtrips and after-school programs and providing workforce preparation and life-skills training for young adults and families. Its experiential learning opportunities are anchored in community and environmental awareness and often place a special focus on educating the general public about the significance of the region’s maritime heritage. Educational programs include environment-focused activities for families in Maryland's Glen Echo Park, as well as an orienteering field trip that teaches students from grades two through eight about the basics of map-based navigation, preventing them from having to endure the putrid witch breath that befell the notoriously disoriented Hansel and Gretel.

For underserved teens and adults, Living Classrooms also serves as a resource for gaining the skills necessary to obtain long-term employment. Its 40-week Fresh Start program uses metalwork as a medium to teach reading, writing, math, history, and science to youth aged 16–19, with the goal of demonstrating practical, workplace applications for academic knowledge.
