Gt. Barrington, MA–Winter Snowshoe Walk/Wildlife Tracking/Birding at Housatonic Flats with Berkshire Natural Resources Council Staff

Explore the fields and riparian forest and learn to recognize and read wildlife tracks and see what winter birds live here. In partnership with the Great Barrington Land Conservancy and Berkshire Natural Resources Council.

Difficulty: Easy (easy pace, little elevation change)

Description: Housatonic Flats provides important habitat to many Berkshire mammals and birds. We will guide visitors on where to look and what to look for. If no snow, we’ll skip the snowshoes and go for a winter hike!

If weather permits, bring your own snowshoes or you can rent a pair from Berkshire Bike & Board (413-528-5555).

Directions: From Great Barrington: From the Price Chopper, head north on Route 7 for less than half a mile. Parking will be on the left.
