Mass Audubon naturalist Zach Adams will lead an evening paddle at Buckley Dunton Lake in Becket.

Twilight is an amazing time to listen and look for wildlife, he says. Beavers, owls, loons, and other wildlife are all possible to spot at Buckley Dunton Lake in October Mountain State Forest. The group stealthily explore the coves and inlets of this beautiful lake, then hitch our boats together to enjoy light refreshments while we listen for nocturnal wildlife sounds.

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.
