Dana Williams will lead a gentle walk with Williamstown Rural Lands to learn about hemlock forests, their human and natural history and threats to their future. On an easy, slow-paced 1.5 mile loop, the group will keep an eye out for animal signs on the way and and check for beaver and otter activity at Harmon Pond.

The walk meets at Margaret Lindley Park (1201 Cold Spring Road, Williamstown). WRL says please check the weather before arriving and bring appropriate clothing (warm, non-cotton layers). Cramp-ons or hiking poles are recommended in case of ice on the trails. Hunting season is ongoing – Hemlock Brook is closed to hunting but orange or bright colors are appreciated nonetheless.

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.
