AVN: Protecting Nature and sharing their Vision at Earth Day

Logo AVNAVN is an 89 year old lobby organization that speaks up on behalf of the environment in The Hague and its environs.  They inform the public, the municipal and provincial governments and politicians on the importance of nature and the environment.  They keep a critical eye on developments of nature policy and work pro-actively for the conservation and improvement of nature and biodiversity. 

But that’s not all they do; they organize local nature projects, such as the Bloeiende Boomspiegel project that brought beautiful flowering plants to the planter boxes surrounding the bases of trees along the city sidewalks in Bezuidenhout neighborhood; in 2014 they organized a Biodiversity Conference, and they lead nature excursions in the area.

This active organization will be part of the Earth Day the Hague event this coming Saturday, April 18th, 2015. See our home page for event details.

De AVN is a 89 jaar oude lobby club voor het belang van groen in en om Den Haag.  Zij informeren het publiek en de gemeentelijke en provinciale overheden en politici over de waarden van natuur en milieu voor de samenleving.  Zij volgen het natuurbeleid kritisch en werken pro-actief aan het behoud en de verbetering van natuur en biodiversiteit.
