The Association for the Protection of Angell Woods (APAW) has been committed to protect and promote responsible use of the woods since its founding in 1999. During this period, the City of Beaconsfield, Ducks Unlimited, APAW and most recently the City of Montreal have all acquired for protection land in Angell Woods which was previously slated for development.
