Nature Walk at Ft. Frederick State Park

Nature Walk at Ft. Frederick State Park

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a general nature walk at Maryland's Fort Frederick State Park, in Washington County, on April 11.
The walk will begin at 1pm and last a few hours.
It will be led by volunteer naturalist Charlie Sullivan, who will be focusing on the natural history of the area, especially wildflowers and birds.
There will be no fee, and anyone with an interest is welcome to participate.
Participants should plan to meet at 12:45pm in the parking lot located next to the C&O Canal towpath at the south end of the park
They should dress appropriately for the weather and wear good shoes or hiking boots. The walk will cover two to three miles on flat surfaces, so it should not be very strenuous
To get to the park, take I-70 to Exit 12 (Big Pool/Indian Springs, Route 56). Turn east on Big Pool Road and follow it for a little over a mile to the park entrance on the right.
Once inside the park follow the park road south for about a mile, past the fort and across the C&O Canal towpath, to the towpath area parking lot on the right.
