Join us for the kick-off of the Library in the Wilderness Program!
Saturday, June 16, 2018, 10:00am-1:00pm
Description: Explore 3 miles of beautiful woods and learn about a new initiative of BNRC and the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s Public Library. The Library in the Wilderness Program allows library cardholders to check out backpacks equipped with field guides, BNRC trail guides, a basic first aid kit, a compass, a magnifying glass, bug spray, and two ponchos just as they would a library book. The backpacks will be available for a 1-week checkout and reservations are required. We’ll have the backpacks on site and participants can experiment with all of the fun contents! 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.
Sponsored by the Berkshire Athenaeum and Berkshire Natural Resources Council.
