The Avon Hills Initiative (AHI) is a community based organization located in central Minnesota committed to preserving the rural and natural character of roughly 50 square miles of land in Avon, Saint Joseph, Collegeville, and Saint Wendel Townships. We work through education, community organization, and local government to increase awareness of land development pressures facing the Avon Hills. We act to initiate meaningful dialogue between stakeholders relative to these pressures, in order to preserve the rich cultural history, natural beauty, and biological diversity of the Avon Hills for generations to come.
