Conservation—Robert Cherdack—robertcherd@gmail.com

The Chapter Conservation Committee has been reinstituted with the following goals: 

1) Supporting the club in its conservation campaigns.

2) Identifying and responding to local issues within western Massachusetts.

3) Encouraging conservation work such as cleanups and invasive controls within chapter activities.

Summer is a Great Time to Get Outdoors

Check out AMC activities in Western Mass. This summer we are offering several series of hikes including the AT in Mass, Hiking Along Rivers, Easy Hikes in Northampton, and the weekly Tuesday hike. You can find both flat water and white water paddling events, bicycling, rock climbing, backpacking, and family programs. Don't miss out on these.

Bicycling

Bicycling Committee Co-Chairs: Brant Cheikes & Janine Papesh, email to bicycling@amcberkshire.org

The Berkshire Chapter's Bicycling Committee launched in 2017. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were able to run only two group rides, early in the season. In 2018 we plan to run at least one group ride each month, starting in May and ending in October. Announcements will be made in the Berkshire chapter's monthly e-mail messages, and updates will appear on this site.

Outings

Our Outings Committee organizes general, non-technical events such as hiking, road and rail trail biking, cross-country skiing, and backpacking trips.

We have a very active list of hiking trips. Most of the year, at least two or three hikes are scheduled each week. Most hikes are on weekends, but we do have a tradition of Tuesday Hiking trips as well. Check out the schedule! Also, read our page on joining a hiking trip.
