Northern Pass update and thanks

I’m writing to update you on next steps in our Northern Pass opposition work that contributions from your chapters helped make happen. As you know we sought funding from you to help meet the expense of the visual expert we hired in partnership with the Forest Society (SPNHF), and who is providing a key counterpoint to Northern Pass’s assessment of the visual impacts of the project. The filing deadline for that testimony was December 30th, and we are very pleased with the results.

Wildlife Tracking: Find & Follow the Signs

Noble View Naturalist Series 2017

Leader: Jim Pelletier, Berkshire Wildlife Tracker & Appalachian Trail Committee Chair

Come learn about tracks, their patterns, and other signs of winter wildlife: how to look and what to look for. We’ll spend a short time inside at the beginning discussing tracking and then hit the trails and fields, looking for tracks and signs and learning to understand the stories they tell. A laminated Animal Tracks ID card that trackers use in the field will be included. Donation $5.00.

Date:

Family Fall Foliage Hike - Saturday, October 22nd

Calling all families! Fall Foliage is here, let's go take a look!

Join us for a family-friendly, short hike to the Lookout Tower on Mt. Sugarloaf near Sunderland, MA.

The sun will be warm and the trees in foliage color as we hike about 2 miles round-trip, to the Lookout Tower and back. This is an easy, family-friendly hike. This is also the last day that the tower is open for the year. And restrooms... oh, what a relief! After the hike, those who choose can head over to nearby Mike’s Maze for more fun or snacks!
