Join us finding clues to piece together the land history at The Boulders Reserve.
Sunday, October 28, 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
Description: Thousands of readers have had their experience of being in a forest changed forever by reading Tom Wessels’s Reading the Forested Landscape. Was this forest once farmland? Was it logged in the past? Was there ever a major catastrophe like a fire or a wind storm that brought trees down? We’ll put our thinking caps on and explore 3 miles of diverse woods, using Wessels’s field guide to piece together the land history. “You’ll feel like a woodland Sherlock Holmes. No walk in the woods will ever be the same.” Please bring lunch/snack, water, and appropriate footwear.
Directions: From Pittsfield, take Routes 8/9 east towards Dalton. Take a left onto Park Avenue. Take another left onto Gulf Road in about 0.5 miles. Trailhead parking is 0.25 miles ahead on the left.
