Every half year, a group of local 5th and 6th graders gets to spend a weekend in an improvised camp in the park meadow and experience first hand the magic and tranquility of nature.
In this blog, I will explore the woods upstream the Old Courthouse Spring (that is the smaller of Wolf Trap creeks).
In this blog, I will explore the woods downstream the Wolf Trap Run (park's main waterway).
A series of photos of one group of trees along the gazebo path taken over the course of one year. The shots were taken roughly in one month intervals.
Most of the time, the two major creeks in the Park, the Wolf Trap Run and the Old Courthouse Spring, are lazily meandering through the woods like a pair of stray lambs. But after a decent storm, they can turn into roaring lions.
Summer is the typical growing season for mushrooms, so they became the focus of the August hike under the tutelage of a Maryland Master Naturalist and the President of the Mycological Association of Washington, William Needham.
If you enjoyed a concert and are curious what is inside that huge wooden construction of the Filene Center, you may consider the Backstage Tour which the park organizes during the off-season.

These are photos from the flooding of the park after a strong storm on July 8th, 2019.
