Mass Audobon naturalists Zach Adams and Dale Abrams will lead a canoe trip on Buckley Dunton Lake in Becket.

Herons, loons, beavers, and other wildlife are all possible sightings on this large, secluded lake in October Mountain State Forest. The group will explore the coves and inlets before paddling ashore to enjoy a snack, visit forest plant communities, and search for signs of animals such as porcupines and moose.

Children must be at least 10, come with an adult and know how to swim. Mass Audubon recommends families bring their own reusable water bottles and insect repellent.

They ask everyone to meet 15 minutes before start time. Groups are limited to 11 people, and Mass Audobon can’t take walk-ins right now, for safety. Masks/face coverings are optional now for outdoor programs.
