The Appalachian Trail in Massachusetts? Is it part of that famous trail from Georgia to Maine? You bet it is and it's right here in the Berkshires! Want to learn more about it: how it came to be; how it makes its way through the Berkshires; the people who maintain it; the people that hike it; and some of the interesting spots along the way? Then come join us for a fun evening with Jim Pelletier, Chair of the Massachusetts Appalachian Trail Management Committee. Jim will take us on a visual grand tour of the National Scenic Trail that's right in our own back yards.
We invite you to join us at our Spring Potluck! Meet fellow outdoor enthusiasts, learn news about our club, have a tasty meal and learn about old-growth trees and forests in Massachusetts.
At this time, the Appalachian Mountain Club is making the final arrangements for the SOLO Traing Course. The course will be held at Noble View Outdoor Center, Russell, MA. Availability of training is on a first-come, first-serve basis and is limited to the number of available instructors. If you are interested in attending the course, it is important that the fee is mailed as soon as possible in order to reserve your space in the program — space is limited. The cost covers class fees, materials, and refreshments.

Noble View Naturalist Series 2017
Leader: Jim Pelletier, Berkshire Wildlife Tracker & Appalachian Trail Committee Chair
Come learn about tracks, their patterns, and other signs of winter wildlife: how to look and what to look for. We’ll spend a short time inside at the beginning discussing tracking and then hit the trails and fields, looking for tracks and signs and learning to understand the stories they tell. A laminated Animal Tracks ID card that trackers use in the field will be included. Donation $5.00.
