Trail Ambassador Program

The Staff at Fort Dupont Park started a program in 2010 for local High School students to fulfill their community service hours. The students work as ambassadors to the trail system, learning all about the historical, cultural and natural aspects of the park. Eventually they become leaders and develop their own programs to teach their peers all that they themselves have leaned and experienced.

For Information please contact the Activity Center at 202-426-7723 and click here to view a downloable pdf. file that covers the program.
