Give a gift that lasts: Help plant a tree at Woodend Sanctuary.

Our goal is to increase native biodiversity, while greatly reducing the presence of non-native invasive plants. The restoration of native plant communities will foster the recovery of interrelated environmental systems in the decades to come, including soil health, groundwater recharge and native food webs.

Native tree species to be planted include American Holly (Ilex opaca), Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana), Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus), Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis), Inkberry (Ilex glabra), and Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana). 

We're excited to watch renewed tree saplings grow and thrive to become a future forest, and nurture the restoration of habitats for native species including shrub-nesting songbirds and the amphibians that require herbaceous cover.

You can be part of this rebirth by enhancing our ability to support our wildlife!

About the Woodend Restoration Project:

Woodend Sanctuary, a 40-acre nature sanctuary 1.5 miles north of Washington, DC, welcomes up to 60,000 visitors each year. Over the past 50 years, ANS has protected all 40 acres inside the busy DC Beltway, using this urban oasis as a learning center for regional residents and as a field trip destination for thousands of area schoolchildren each year.

Through our Woodend Restoration Project, we hope to see a diverse oak-hickory forest at Woodend with tree seedlings to ensure the forest of the future, blooming native spring flowers to support our pollinators, and a rich understory to provide habitat for the birds, salamanders and other species that are struggling to maintain their populations in the urban landscape of Washington, DC.
