Aimee Gelinas, Director of the Tamarack Hollow Nature & Cultural Center, leads a walk to explore the plants and animals of Petticoat Hill in Williamsburg – a property managed by The Trustees.

On a roundtrip 2-mile hike, learn about the tracks and signs of wildlife, winter tree ID and evergreen plants, with a stunning stand of American Beech trees, rocky outcrops, varied habitats and historical folklore.

This will be a hike or snowshoe, depending on trail conditions, with some hills and rocky areas. The walk is free, donations accepted, thanks to support in part by a grant from the Williamsburg Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. To sign up, Aimee asks you to write to her at aimee@gaiaroots.com.

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.
