The River Sojourns were week-long paddling trips that connected community members with their local waterways. Starting in the 90s, the sojourns occurred annually for about 10 years on the Susquehanna, Potomac, and Patuxent Rivers as an opportunity for people young, old, and everywhere in between to connect with nature. Staff member, Jamie Alberti reflects on her experience as staff leader on the River Sojourns and her major takeaways. Jamie encourages everyone to get outside, experience nature in any way that they can, and create some memories.
