Description: Join the Berkshire Environmental Action Team and the Berkshire Natural Resources Council on an outing to look for signs of wildlife at The Boulders reserve in Pittsfield. Hopefully, we’ll have some snow to look for tracks, but if not we’ll share other tips for finding what local wildlife have been up to; including installing a wildlife camera. Please bring water, wear sturdy footwear (consider snowshoes and/or micro-spikes) and bring layers. BNRC has a few pairs of micro-spikes and snowshoes to loan (please email in advance). Wildlife tracking involves standing still, so please be mindful of that when dressing and if you’re planning to bring children.
The parking area is to the left of the house at this address: 1051 Dalton Ave, Pittsfield, MA 01201 and across from Hubbard Avenue. There is a stone staircase and informational kiosk entering the south access to The Boulders Reserve.
