Fort Foote Cleanup Details - Saturday, 29 April 10am-12pm

Posted by mburden on Apr 20 2017 - 7:53pm
Den 8 is leading an effort on Saturday, April 29th to clean-up Fort Foote.  Fort Foote is a National Park that sits next to the National Harbor and is in great need of assistance.  This is the second year that Den 8 and Pack 129 have helped the Park.  
This beautiful park looks over the Potomac River and was built during the Civil War as part of a ring of forts built to protect the City of Washington from the Confederates.  It was named in honor of Admiral Andrew H. Foote who distinguished himself during the Civil War's Mississippi River campaigns and died as a result of injuries sustained during the war. 
NPS needs significant help in cleaning up trash at the Park.  We will meet the ranger at10:00am where the park provides trash bags and gloves and direction.  We will bag trash for an hour or so and then explore the park.  There are a couple trails that are about 3/4 mile through the forest taking you down to the beach.  On the way back we'll visit a couple cannons still on display.  They are the Rodman Smoothbore Canons, a 15" gun that was the largest of the U.S. Arsenal during the Civil War.
There is also lots of wildlife in the Park including a couple Bald Eagles, Deer, Foxes, etc.
See the following link: 

Fort Foote is located on the Potomac River in Prince Georges County. From the Beltway (I-95), take exit 3, Indian Head Highway south (MD210) and drive for approximately 3.5 miles to Old Fort Road. Turn right for 1 mile to Fort Foote Road S, turn left. Follow the winding road through the residential area to entrance sight on the left for the fort.

Park Cleanup at Fort Foote

On Saturday, 29 April we will be doing Clean-Up Day at Fort Foote Park.  Located just south of National Harbor on the Maryland side of the Potomac, Fort Foote features waterfront beaches, hiking trails, and Civil War era cannons.  It also features plenty of trash along the beach, and could use our help cleaning it up.  More details will come regarding meetup time and any needed supplies, but save the date!
