What do animals do when it snows? Where do insects go in the winter? How do animals find food? Join Williamstown Rural Lands naturalist Dana Williams to explore winter animal adaptations at Berlin Mountain on this easy, slow-paced 1 mile walk.

Content will be geared towards families, but all ages welcome. Meet at Mt. Berlin Trailhead (end of Berlin Rd., Williamstown). Please leave furred friends at home. Space limited event, so WRL suggests saving your spot ahead of time.

What to bring: Please check the weather before arriving and bring appropriate clothing (warm, non-cotton layers, gloves, hat, weather proof jacket, waterproof boots, snow or rain pants will be helpful if there is snow on the ground!). Cramp-ons, snowshoes or hiking poles may be recommended if there is ice or snow on the trails.

There is a medium-sized dirt parking lot at the Mount Berlin Trailhead (end of Berlin Road, Williamstown). Please note that Berlin Road is a dirt road, and there are no bathrooms or indoor spaces at this site.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
