The Main Calendar and the Community Development & Planning Meetings Calendar show public meeting notices for Andover board, committee, commission, and council meetings. The Community Events Calendar is to publicize any event located in Andover sponsored by the Town, by a non-profit, or by a for-profit organization running a charitable fundraiser, where the general public is invited to attend.

May 18, 2019, 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Andover Conservation Commission’s Pole Hill Reservation
Boy Scouts of Ballard Vale Troop 76 will be holding an open house at the Andover Conservation Commission’s Pole Hill Reservation. Troop 76, sponsored by the
Ballard Vale United Church, was recognized as stewards of the Reservation by the ACC.
Part of the agreement is that each year they host an event open to the public.
Visitors can learn from the Scouts about camping, fire safety, orienteering, and geocaching. Visitors are welcome to try a scavenger hunt. There will also be some life-long residents to talk about the history of Pole Hill, New Stream, and the historic stone-arch bridge and its recent renovation.
Access to the area can be gained by land or water. Trailheads are located at the end of Marland St. and Pole Hill Dr.
Paddlers can put in the Shawsheen River at the Ballard Vale millpond and head upstream. For a much shorter paddle, put in at the ACC’s canoe launch on Lowell Junction Rd. and head downstream. The Reservation is on the West side of the bridge.
