What is Angeles Volunteer Association?

The Angeles Volunteer Association (AVA) is a public service organization dedicated to the preservation and care of the Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.  Our volunteers assist the U.S. Forest Service in its efforts to maintain forest/monument resources and to provide visitors with opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities, such as camping, picnicking, hiking and fishing. AVA was founded in 1993 and is a California 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.

What We Do:

Some of the volunteer activities in which AVA participates are:
Trail Patrol on Foot

Outreach Activities at Schools or Community Events
Hosting School or College Groups Engaged in Service Projects in the Forest

Monthly Meetings

Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. 

If you are interested in learning more about our organization, we encourage you to attend one of our meetings.  We meet at the Church of the Brethren in downtown Glendora.  The church  is located on the northwest corner of Glendora Ave. and Carroll Ave.
