About Our Reservations
About 1100 acres of AVIS reservations are open to all for hiking, birding, and cross country skiing. Hunting is prohibited on all of our reservations with nine exceptions. Motor vehicles, fires, and camping on these conservation lands are prohibited. Photos, maps, and further information are available on the reservations page.
Volunteer wardens are responsible for the care and oversight of each reservation and they are often neighbors. If you have questions or concerns about a particular reservation, please contact the reservation's warden.
Various groups offer hiking trips throughout the year. See the events and links page for more information.
