Avalonia Land Conservancy, Inc. is a land trust dedicated to the conservation via acquisition of natural areas. It is a non-profit, non-political, tax-exempt organization. We believe it is essential to conserve our natural resources for the benefit of wildlife, our present generation, and the generations yet to come.
Avalonia now holds more than 3200 acres of land, preserved in perpetuity as natural open space. Where it is appropriate, trails are maintained for ‘passive’ enjoyment, such as hiking, bird-watching, nature study and photography. We ask that you take only pictures and leave only footprints. Avalonia encourages educational activities and scientific studies on its preserves.
Avalonia depends almost entirely upon volunteer help and contributions to maintain its preserves and to manage its affairs. Avalonia’s officers, directors, and members are your neighbors, who are working to conserve our local natural resources for the common benefit. more about us
