Visit the Audubon Naturalist Society, 8940 Jones Mill Road in Chevy Chase, MD on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 for the FREE grand opening celebration of Woodend Nature Sanctuary.

The Grand Opening of Woodend as a restored oasis of sustainable habitats will feature tours by docents, a scavenger hunt for all ages, native plant sale, discounts at the Naturalist Shop, and giveaways!

Use new trails, now accessible to wheelchairs, strollers, walkers, and canes. See the box turtles, tadpoles, frogs, woodpeckers, and other wildlife flourishing on the 33-acre portion of the sanctuary because of its upgraded stream, pond, and butterfly-friendly meadow habitats.

Come see the new native plants in our woods, including more than 350 native trees, 800 native shrubs and nearly 10,000 native plants. Learn how our newly restored stream functions to decrease pollution into Rock Creek and the Chesapeake Bay.
