Introduction

Avalon is under the North Atlantic flyway and millions of birds pass by our shore and frequently stop here for food, water and rest on their journey.  Others nest, feed and sing on our barrier island during the warmer months.  Have you ever wondered why birds sing the most at pre-dawn?  Have you every tried to identify birds by their song?  If yes, open this website and discover mother nature at her best!

Avalon Environmental Commission Mission

The purpose of the Environmental Commission is the protection, development, or use of natural resources within the Borough. The Commission advises the governing body on a variety of environmental issues relating to protection, sustainability, and beautification within the Borough, and also advises the Planning and Zoning Board about environmental impacts regarding development. The Commission informs residents on environmental practices and policies to help protect our community’s environment.
