Title: MNPS Field Trip: Fort Bunker Hill

Leader: Mary Pat Rowan

Next in our series of (so far) over 100 field trips in the Fort Circle Parks of Washington, DC: We will return to FORT BUNKER HILL to do a short trip through this small Fort. It is a typical terrace-gravel upland site where we will see many of our favorite dry site trees and a good representation of the typical health community we find in terrace-gravel soils. Note that, anticipating cold weather, this will only be a 2-hour walk. We may end in a coffee shop to talk about what we saw in a cozy setting.

Directions: Fort Bunker Hill is located in the middle of the Brookland community in Northeast Washington DC and therefore easily accessible by metro. It is the full city block bounded by 13th Street NE on the west, 14th Street on the east, Otis Street on the south and Perry Street on the north. We will meet on 14th Street NE close to its intersection with Otis Street where those driving can park on the east side of 14th Street NE.

Contact: Mary Pat Rowan,, 202 526 8821.

Bring: Snack, water. Wear appropriate shoes and clothing.

The trip will be cancelled in the event of rain, but will not be cancelled if there is light snow. Call Mary Pat before 9 in the morning if in doubt.

Registration is not required.
