ANDOVER VILLAGE IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY
April 2, 2010
AVIS is one of the oldest conservation associations in the US, founded in 1894. I love to walk and there is no better Town to walk in than Andover, due in large part to AVIS and the land it has preserved.
An all volunteer organization with Trustees who each assume responsibility for land management, land acquisition, fundraising, communication and/or anything else that must be done to sustain this wonderful organization. A volunteer warden assumes responsibility for maintaining each reservation and 1000 members both enjoy the reservations and provide financial support. The website www.avisandover.org was designed by volunteers. Check out AVIS website and come walk our trails.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
walking on the trails, working to acquire additional land for existing reservations and new reservations and helping with the annual appeal for land acquisition funds each year.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
being in the woods and working with a wonderful team of volunteers
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
preserve another 1000 acres and double the land in its care.
