Civil War Fort Field Trips in Washington DC (102 in the series) - Roosevelt Island
Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society
Leaders: Mary Pat Rowan and Lou Aronica
Because the Potomac River may be high on Sunday we may have to cancel the trip. Someone will check the status of the river on Saturday and with that the decision will be made whether or not to cancel. Please call Mary Pat Rowan if you plan to come to the trip so you can be notified of any cancellations. Call before 9 am on Sunday if it is raining at that time.

Wish for low waters and no more rain and we may see you on Sunday. We will venture away from the Forts again this month and take a trip to Roosevelt Island in the Potomac River. Bring your plant books, good walking shoes and a sense of adventure because this is a new woodland to explore and we don’t know what we will find.
Directions: Because we will not be able to park in the Roosevelt Island parking lot (it gets filled by 9 am) we will meet at the Rosslyn Metro station and walk to the Island from there. We will meet at the top of the Metro escalator outside of the station.
Bring: Water and lunch.
Note: Easy to moderate walk. If rain threatens, call Sunday morning before 9 am to check on status of walk.
