Chevy Chase, MD – From August 27th to the 31st, ANS will be making repairs and upgrades along the driveway through Woodend Nature Sanctuary.

From Aug 27-29, the sanctuary will be open to the public, however, the front entrance at Jones Mill Road will be closed.  If you visit on those days, please use the entrance on Brierly Road and park in one of the lots near the mansion.

On Thursday, August 30th and Friday, August 31st the sanctuary will be closed to the public. ANS email will not be available to staff during this time.
