We will return to FORT DUPONT, the largest of the civil war fort properties in Washington, to explore the upland forests and look for American Chestnut trees if we can find any. We will identify any trees we see as well as shrubs and ground plants along the way. This is the last civil war sites walk for the season until the fall.
