Walks & Talks

  • Sat

    Night Sounds at Fitzgerald Lake with Molly Hale

    8:30pm - 10pm
    Walks & Talks

    Take a walk to explore the sounds of the woods and shoreline at night. We’ll be on trails using flashlights (bring your own, plus extra batteries). We’ll talk about the sounds we hear and also spend several minutes experiencing the dark in silence. To hone our hearing to the sounds of the wild, we’ll request people to refrain from much talking while we walk. Be prepared for mosquitoes and ticks. Adults and children welcome, but space is limited to 10 participants; please call Molly at 413-585-0791 or 413-336-1348 to register.

    Molly has been an active participant with BBC for many years, leading walks, advising us on habitat and wildlife issues, and serving on the Board of Directors. She teaches natural history at Greenfield Community College, works for Conservation Works, LLC, and does project work for state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife.

    Free. Space limited.
