As we have done in the past, we have planned this event as a joint field trip with the Potowmack Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society. We will explore the terrace gravel forests of Fort Dupont both North and South of the stream that flows through the middle of Fort Dupont Park.
Directions: We will meet in the parking lot of the Ft. DuPont Activity Center off Randall Circle. Randall Circle is on Minnesota Ave SE at Massachusetts Ave SE. Access via East Capital Street and go south on Minnesota Ave SE to Randall Circle which is at Mass Ave SE. Or, take I-295 from the beltway north to Pennsylvania Ave SE and turn north on Minnesota Ave. Travel north until you get to Mass Ave SE which is Randall Circle. Go around the circle and into the park at the sign and you will see the parking lot on your left.
Leaders: Mary Pat Rowan and Lou Aronica
Bring: Water and lunch.
