Donations keep land open, accessible and enjoyable—for you!
You make it possible for BNRC to save land for wildlife and people; to give people and animals room to roam in unspoiled nature.
Create your place outdoors . . .
Have fun and rewarding experiences outdoors. Be sure everything you love about the Berkshires is passed along to those who come after you—and that it is expertly cared for today. That’s what you make possible when you give to the work of BNRC.
. . . and make it your own.
Are you a hiker, skier, dog walker, mountain biker, angler, artist, picnicker, birdwatcher, hunter, or thinker? You want a place where you can practice your passion . . . a place you can call your home away from home.

However you choose to donate, your gift will have an impact for generations to come.
When you give to the work of BNRC, you…
save land, shelter wildlife, fund year-round free guided hikes, help monitor 150 conserved properties, provide free trailhead maps and the free BNRC trails app, maintain existing trails, and keep all BNRC reserves open every day, to everyone, for FREE.
You do a lot as a BNRC donor, and BNRC would not exist without you.
When you designate your gift to The High Road…
you are creating a county-wide network of trails and conservation land, linking towns to nature, and ecology to economics. Eventually, the network will be continuous, offering many options of terrain, starting points, or length of walk—from 30 minutes to 30 days. Imagine taking a weekend walk to the next town for lunch, or taking a lunch hour stroll to escape the office for the serenity of the woods. Your help on The High Road will make this vision a reality.
