Guided tour of Soapstone Valley trees
June 8, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Join an arborist from Casey Trees for an hour-long guided tree walk in the Soapstone Valley, the finger of Rock Creek Park that extends into Forrest Hills. The Soapstone Valley Trail is one of the finest trails in Rock Creek Park, a few steps into the woods from Van Ness. The trailhead on Albemarle Street N.W.—about a block east of the Connecticut Avenue intersection—is marked by a Potomac Appalachian Trail Club sign.
Increase your enjoyment of one of Washington’s best features, our trees, learning the basics of tree identification by observing a variety of native D.C. trees in the neighborhood. Skills learned will help you identify trees in your neighborhood or participate in an upcoming park tree inventory this summer.
Rain or shine! Wear appropriate foot gear for walking on wooded paths. Gather at the Cleveland Park Interim Library, 4340 Connecticut Avenue, N.W., to start the walk promptly at 6:30 p.m.
