We are making historic Woodend Nature Sanctuary into Washington's
oasis of SUSTAINABLE, HEALTHY, NATURAL HABITATS
Habitat restoration at Woodend Sanctuary focuses on restoring forward – aiming for the future, guided by the wisdom of the past. At Woodend, we strive to re-establish complex relationships between people, plants, insects, birds, and animals to help put nature back on to a healthy trajectory.

Ways to Get Involved:
"It's exciting to see new native plant specifies appearing on the property. Educating children about the importance of biodiversity, food chains, and native flora and fauna becomes much easier when you are able to point them out."
"My first experience volunteering at Woodend involved surveying and nurturing the Restored Meadow. I quickly learned to identify many native plant species that were thriving in the meadow and also how much fun it was to volunteer with other nature loving folks."
"There is nothing like hands-on experience removing invasive plants and replacing them with native species. Through that process, I have learned more about each plant’s value and impact on improvement of the vibrancy and resilience of the plant and animal diversity at Woodend"
"I can not thank you all enough for providing fulfilling tangible projects - that saw the full lifecycle of restoration from invasive removal to planting - for our crews to really understand the impact of their work in the watershed."
