Connecting with nature can be powerful, healing, and inspirational - for us and the environment. By investing in our natural surroundings, we are investing in ourselves and our community.

Nell's Spheres Of Stewardship

To be a steward is to be a person who takes responsibility for something.  The Woodlands takes pride in being a steward of our inspiring 58 acre nature preserve while providing the opportunity for our community to experience the peace and enchantment of the landscape. We focus on these three areas because we believe there is an intrinsic interdependence between humans and nature that is optimized when connected.
