  • 02/26/2017
  • 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • NE Washington DC

Sponsoring Organization: Maryland Native Plant Society

147th walk in the Wild Washington series

David left us earlier this month. He was the heart and soul of the wild Washington walks. He will be dearly missed. Obituary for David M. Culp, Jr.

We will honor David's life by going on a walk.

We will visit another upland terrace-gravel forest.  This is a Fort where the earthen fortifications can be seen and experienced as an historic example of a regenerated forest. We will explore the geology and the extensive blueberry/huckleberry/azalea patches in this dry, upland Chestnut Oak forest.

Leaders: Liz Matthews, Allen Browne, Jane Hill and Claudine Lebeau



Notes: Easy to moderate walk.

Bring: Water and lunch. Wear good shoes and long pants because of poison ivy and greenbriar.

Cancellation Policy: Trip will be cancelled if it is raining.  Call Claudine before 9 am on Sunday if you have concerns about whether the trip is cancelled due to weather.

Contact: (for additional information; not to register) Claudine Lebeau: or 240-472-2803

Directions: Fort Totten is located on Fort Totten Drive just one block east of North Capital Street, south of where Missouri Avenue meets Riggs Road. We will meet at the corner of Allison St NE and Fort Totten drive near the picnic tables.
