A Day of Stewardship Post-Election – Acting Locally for Nature

A beautiful day of post-election stewardship at Woodend, walking the trails to clear them of debris and fix up their edges.

Now more than ever, it’s important to care for the natural world in our local community. Facing uncertainty about environmental protection at the federal level, we can act locally to protect nature. Last Saturday, during this post-election period, the Audubon Naturalist Society invited our community to gather, work together and remind ourselves of our shared value of preserving the natural world. Three dozen members, volunteers, staff, and new visitors rolled up our sleeves and worked side by side to care for nature at Woodend Nature Sanctuary. We were there for each other, for our green spaces and the water we drink; for the birds we love and the invasive species we don’t(!); for future generations and our current environmental leaders. We all know there are challenges ahead, so we took Saturday morning to remind ourselves of our shared passion for nature and our enormous power as a community that loves and protects the natural world right here at home. ANS’s vision is to build a larger, more diverse community of people who treasure the natural world and work to preserve it. As we look to the future, it’s important for us to join together to ensure our shared vision comes true. You, too, can join us in acting locally for nature – sign up to volunteer with ANS. You can help us on the ground, out in the forest or meadow at our beautiful sanctuary. Or you can research conservation issues, teach children in nature, help us reach out to new communities with Creek Critters events, and more. Thank you for your dedication and commitment to acting locally for nature.
