Naturalist Nan Childs and Patti Steinman, education coordinator at Arcadia wildlife sanctuary, will lead a trip to Hawley Bog.

At an elevation of 1,800 feet, Hawley Bog resembles the cold bogs of Canada. Come learn the history of the area and visit this pristine peatland owned by both The Nature Conservancy and the Five Colleges.

An early fall walk before the frosts should enable us to see all three types of Massachusetts carnivorous plants: sundew, pitcher plant and bladderwort. Autumn is also the time to see cottongrass, a glacial relict species.

Groups are limited, and Mass Audobon can’t take walk-ins right now, for safety, so you will need to save space ahead. You will need to dress for the weather.

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.
