Paddle through farms and forest with an eye to the sky for migrating raptors as you wind your way down the Housatonic River with Alison Dixon of the Housatonic Valley Association. The trip will cover about three miles of paddling in two and a half hours, in a loop, and families with children 10 years and older are welcome. Canoes, paddles and PFD’s are provided, or you can bring your own canoe or kayak. The trip is free.

You will need to register ahead by calling 413-298-7024 or writing to, and you will get
directions and information then.

Housatonic Heritage.

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.
