The Mid-Atlantic Marine Education Association would like to invite formal and non-formal educators to attend the MD & DC Regional Mini-Conference on Saturday, June 11th from 9:00am-3:00pm. The conference will be held at Piscataway at Fort Washington Marina in Fort Washington, MD. The program begins with an intro to the site and kayaking by naturalist/owner/MAMEA member, Judy Lathrop of Atlantic Kayak Company. Then Judy will take us out on the water for approximately three hours. We will spend the day kayaking through small creeks, islands, wild rice, water lilies, and see TONS of beautiful wildlife! We will also have the chance to seine and each participant will bring their own lunch to eat on the gorgeous Piscataway! Previous kayaking experience is NOT necessary. All skill levels are welcome!

For a sneak peak, check out Atlantic Kayak Company’s website:


  • $15 for current MAMEA members (includes kayaking program/rentals)
  • $25 for renewing or non-members (includes kayaking program/rentals & a 1-year MAMEA membership)

Registration deadline is June 9th, 2016 by 5:00 pm. The program is outdoors, so please dress appropriately for the weather and for kayaking. Maximum registration is 18 people. Registration is on a first come first served basis.

To register, use the form below and submit payment via Paypal.

Refund Policy
Refunds are not provided unless the kayaking program cancels due to inclement weather. In any case, there is not a refund of membership dues so you will have a MAMEA membership either way.
