Title: MNPS Field Trip: Fort Chaplin

Leader: Mary Pat Rowan

 Continuing our series of over 100 (so far) visits to Civil War Fort sites in Washington, DC we will return to FORT CHAPLIN. Always a very special trip in May, we see wild flowers which only appear in May and each year at Fort Chaplin we seem to see more than the year before. We will also be in one of the best forests in the Fort Circle and see much more than wildflowers.
DIRECTIONS: Meet on East Capital Street at 41st Street NE.  Traveling east on Benning Road, cross Anacostia River and cross  Minnesota Av. NE. Go all the way to where Benning Road curves to the right and intersects with East Capital Street.  Take a right on East Capital and head west a few blocks until you get to 41st Street NE on your right.  Take a right and park on 41st or on East Capital if you can.
Bring Water and Lunch.

Note:  Easy to moderate walk. Call before 9 am on the Sunday morning of the trip if weather is uncertain, to enquire about a possible cancellation.
