Mass Audubon naturalist Zach Adams will lead a twilight paddle through the Housatonic Valley Wildlife Management Area.

Evening is the perfect time to look for wildlife. The group will gently explore the rich wetlands in the hours before dusk, find a cove to come together in and enjoy light refreshments while listening and watching for wildlife. Kingfishers, herons, muskrats, beavers, and other wildlife are all possible sightings.

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 and prepare for uneven terrain. Masks are optional.

Children need to be at least 10 years old, accompanied by an adult, and know how to swim. Mass Audubon recommends insect repellent and asks everyone to meet 15 minutes before start time. And they ask everyone to support their efforts in reducing plastic waste by bringing a reusable water bottle.

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.
