Stay Connected with ANS

Although we are unable to gather in our usual ways, we want to share these 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.

In this sad and precarious moment for our nation and our region, Executive Director Lisa Alexander discusses the very important role that ANS can play in repairing our nation's brokenness, and how we each can be a source of healing.

Corazón Latino Executive Director Felípe Benitez and Melanie Quiñones Santiago (Master's Student at Cornell University) share their experiences engaging the Latino community in conservation in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.

"How precious is breathing? How important is it to preserve natural spaces and protect the health of residents of this region? We at the Audubon Naturalist Society want Maryland Department of Transportation and the Maryland State Highway Administration to tell us, because the delivery of this 90-pound EIS for an $11 billion project with only 90 days to review it suggests that our health and well-being are not a top priority. Taxpayers deserve better.”

This Project is one of the largest of its type ever proposed & will cost $11+ billion. The public needs more than 90 days to review & comment on the environmental impact report with appendices numbering 18,000+ pages. We are respectfully requesting a 120-day comment period: https://t.co/CdiP6hbiAs https://t.co/YPkX86j0ys
