Mass Audubon invites the community to explore the wilder side of Canoe Meadows and help restore and protect vital floodplain plant communities. Help nurture native tree and shrub plantings by installing and maintaining protective cages and controlling invasive plants.

The event is free, and volunteers under 14 need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Unaccompanied volunteers 14-18 must provide written permission from a parent or guardian.

You’ll enjoy seeing friends and meeting others who enjoy lending a hand with habitat stewardship. Bring your favorite work gloves, facemask and water bottle/beverage. Masks required.

This program is part of our month-long celebration of Earth Day, nature, diversity, community, and climate action. For more opportunities to get outside and celebrate with us, visit massaudubon.org/earthmonth.

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.
