Solo Wilderness First Aid Training

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.


Northern Pass update and thanks

I’m writing to update you on next steps in our Northern Pass opposition work that contributions from your chapters helped make happen. As you know we sought funding from you to help meet the expense of the visual expert we hired in partnership with the Forest Society (SPNHF), and who is providing a key counterpoint to Northern Pass’s assessment of the visual impacts of the project. The filing deadline for that testimony was December 30th, and we are very pleased with the results.

Wildlife Tracking: Find & Follow the Signs

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.
