Join the Student Conservation Association for National Trails Day to help revitalize historic Fort DuPont Park in Washington, DC. With the support of American Express and in support of the Find Your Park campaign, SCA is mobilizing volunteers coast to coast in celebration of the National Park Service Centennial. Join us as we give back to DC’s National Parks!
Covering more than 400 acres, Fort DuPont Park is one of Washington DC’s largest parks, and serves as an important sub-watershed of the Anacostia River. The park is named after Samuel F. DuPont, a Rear Admiral in the United States Navy who played a major role in the American Civil War. Fort DuPont is popular for hiking, biking, picnics, gardening, music, and ranger-led Civil War Programs. Volunteers will help to restore the grounds of the park through various large-scale service projects.
Free lunch and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers!
