Thank You!   
Students planting at ANS
Special thanks to the students from St. Andrew’s (pictured from left to right: Emily, Leia, Kristen, Rhys and Billy). The students worked with ANS for two weeks mapping school watershed profiles for 17 GreenKids schools, leading a volunteer session with Sidwell Friends School in tree care, planting native plants, trail maintenance, invasive removal and cleaning up our basement!  

Our thanks also to the Bethesda-Farm Women’s MarketCandy Kessel and the members of the Bethesda Community Garden Club, for donating the native plants the students planted.

Dive Into Cool Summer Courses

Wade in a wetland. Walk through a meadow of milkweeds. Learn to tell a beetle from a true bug--or dig into the subterranean world of fungi.  Sign up while there's still space in one of the evening courses offered through our Natural History Field Studies Program for adults, cosponsored with the Graduate School, USA. Summer session begins June 23, with all classes at our Woodend Sanctuary.  Register early; classes cancelled if minimum enrollment isn’t reached 2 weeks before class start date.

Maine: Fall Migration Featuring Monhegan Island 
Enjoy fall migration at one of New England’s best-known migratory hotspots, Monhegan Island, located off the coast of central Maine. We spend three nights on Monhegan, watching for migratory songbirds, raptors, waterfowl, monarch butterflies and more. All travel on Monhegan is by foot, so this is the perfect trip for those who love to walk. The ferry ride to and from Monhegan crosses waters where shearwaters, alcids and marine mammals might be seen. Our trip also visits outstanding natural areas on the mainland. Join trip leader David Farner September 17-22, 2014. Learn more and register.
