Preparing for Winter: A Walk in the Woods with Ted Watt

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL! THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST: If you’d like to be placed on the waiting list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Autumn is a beautiful time of year to be outdoors, and it’s also a busy time for wildlife. Birds are migrating, squirrels are stashing food, and trees are preparing themselves for the winter months. On Sunday, November 11, join Ted Watt, Naturalist and Environmental Educator with the Hitchcock Center for the Environment for an exploration of a little-known Amherst conservation area near the Hadley town line.
Ted will take us on a relaxed walk through this red maple floodplain forest that has a significant stream flowing through–one of many tributaries of the Mill River. The topography is flat and our walk will be approximately 1.5 miles. We‘ll explore anything that catches our attention as we go, and also talk about what various wildlife species and plants in the area are doing to prepare themselves for the transition to winter.
The trail is likely to be wet depending on rainfall so wear appropriate footwear. Bring binoculars and your curiosity!
Registration is required, and space is limited to 20 participants. There is no rain date for this program.
The event is free for participants, though donations are welcome. Meeting place details will be provided after you register.
