Stay Connected


Here are a variety of digital resources to help you
enjoy the important mental and physical health benefits of being in nature.

If you can, please make a donation to help ANS stay strong through this crisis.

Your gift of any size will help ANS staff continue to produce these digital resources that support our mission work while we are closed to the public.

We are grateful for your generosity throughout the year and especially now.

Please note: Woodend’s vehicle entrances feature deer exclusion grates, which also preclude pedestrians and cyclists from crossing. All pedestrians and cyclists should enter Woodend through either the pedestrian entrance on Jones Mill Road to the right of the vehicle entrance or the pedestrian entrance on Brierly Road to the right of the vehicle entrance. Crossing the deer exclusion grates on foot or on a bicycle could result in injury.
