Water Water Everywhere

The Avalonia Photo Contest

2022 is all about water!

The team at Avalonia hopes to increase awareness of our region’s most valuable resource — water! Water is amazing. It takes on many forms: a vernal pool to a raging sea; an icicle to a foggy mist; clean drinking water to flooded streets! Avalonia’s preserves act as filters and buffers as flooding occurs during storms and sea levels rise. That’s why it’s never been more important to protect the land that you love. And that’s what we do!

The submission period is closed. Thank you for participating!

Any brook, stream, river, pond, or body of water on an Avalonia property that buffers our shoreline, filters our water, and/or protects our wildlife. Take a hike and discover Avalonia!
