North Woodside is home to many species. Check out our adorable fox kit neighbors on Hanover St.! Can you count how many there are?
The video above was filmed the last week in April 2022. A month earlier a wildlife camera caught a fox sniffing and then “capturing” a small gingerbread house that had been placed in another backyard on Hanover St.
Hmmm, a gingerbread-loving fox, seven little foxes…this could become fodder for modern-day fairytale!
Casey Trees was in the neighborhood last month, planting our latest batch of street trees in cooperation with the county, courtesy of a Chesapeake Bay Foundation grant.
You’ll see new trees on 2nd, 3rd, Elkhart, Luzerne, Lanier, Louis, Glen Ross, Glenridge, Hanover, Rookwood, and Stratton. Some less-common species we are getting this year include a black willow on Hanover St and a bald cypress on Glen Ross near the 5-way intersection.
The Tree Committee is starting to collect names for the next round of plantings to go in this fall or next spring. If you want a new street tree or trees and think you have the space, contact the Tree Committee.
Special thanks to Casey Trees and county arborist Jack Pond. Jack inspects, chooses species, and coordinates with Casey Trees. Casey Trees applied for the grant and does the planting.
May not be Brookside Gardens, but the North Woodside Garden of Lights was beautiful last night. And no tickets needed. Here is a gallery of a few illuminated-snow favorites. Photos by Lilian Pintea. Light artistry–enhanced by Mother Nature–by various neighbors on various streets.
The 2021 North Woodside Graduation parade took place on Sunday, June 6, 2021.
Kids graduating or being promoted – all levels – participated, most traveling in decorated cars, with two riding bicycles. The parade started at Woodlin and ended at the parking lot across from Sniders (see parade route below).
Some links to a bunch of historical maps that show North Woodside in its younger days (zoom in just above the northern tip of DC to where it says “Woodside”)
1891 (year after our neighborhood was established)
1893 (shows the neighborhood lies ~7.5 miles from White House)
1917 (shows bridge that preceded the historic Talbot Avenue Bridge, built in 1918 and demolished in 2019) Note: if you live in one of the oldest houses in the neighborhood you should be able to find your house on this one.
