Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society 

145th walk in the Wild Washington – Forts series
We will visit Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens to view the last remaining tidal marsh in the District of Columbia. The park is home to a wide variety of flora once native to the region before urban sprawl took the surrounding land. We will walk part of the River Walk trail and then walk on the boardwalk over the marsh to the banks of the Anacostia River. The park is a National Park Service site.

Leader:  David Culp



Notes: Easy walk but we may encounter poison ivy so dress accordingly.

Bring: Water and lunch or a snack. 

Cancellation Policy:  Cancelled if raining, but call David at 202-415-1594 (cell phone) Sunday morning if weather is uncertain and you are concerned about cancellation.
