New Publications Make it Easier to Enjoy the Outdoors

People learn to love nature in so many ways, and there are so many ways to enjoy it. Lunch on a park bench, the sound of the birds on a quiet stroll, games with children on your favorite trail, getting your heart rate up on a steep climb. BNRC offers outdoor experiences, education, and resources for the Berkshire community and beyond to establish and build on those connections to nature. Two new BNRC publications will make it easier for people to explore nature in new ways.

Berkshire County Trails for All

This brochure featuring six accessible trails in the Berkshires, was developed as part of a BNRC partnership with Berkshire Family Hikes and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, to help people find ADA-accessible trails. Each trail will have a streamlined description that gives enough information for a user to decide if it is a good fit for them before they visit.

Everybody Can Hike

A user-friendly resource to share information on what to bring, what to expect, and how to stay safe on the trails. This innovative guide and online resource was conceived in partnership with Latinas 413, Berkshire Immigrant Center, and Berkshire Language Management. BNRC is committed to ongoing learning, action toward meeting needs, community needs, and ensuring that BNRC trails are truly welcoming to all.
