What's Included

Explore the New Hitchcock Center’s grounds With Ted Watt Sunday, October 30, 9:30-12:30 We’ll walk leisurely along the new trail system and make notes of what is happening in the world of nature. We are working with Hampshire to develop a searchable database of plant and animal sightings on the campus. On this walk we will gather information to be included in this database. No previous knowledge or experience is needed. Just bring your eyes and your curiosity, and binoculars if you have them. Dress for the weather as we will be outdoors for 3 hours. Members $10 Non-members $12
