Whats Going On
Due to the impending storm and the statewide travel ban the WRLF offices will be closed tomorrow January 27. We will be in email contact if you need to reach us. Be safe!
Join the WRLF at Sheep Hill for some winter fun on Saturday February 21 at the annual Winter Open House from 1-4 PM.
Afternoon activities will include animal tracking with Elia Delmolino from Berkshire Environmental Action Team, a winter ecology hike suitable for all ages, and sledding and snowshoeing on the hill if snow conditions are good. Inside the farmhouse there will be seasonal craft activities, and maple treats to celebrate the maple syrup season.
Leslie Reed-Evans, Executive Director of the WRLF, describes the Open House as an opportunity for people to become acquainted with the WRLF, its Sheep Hill property and other conservation lands and trails, and its nature and cultural education programs. Reed-Evans says “Winter is a great time to get outside and explore, whether there’s snow or not. This is an opportunity to experience nature in its quiet season.”
The event is open to all ages, with a suggested donation of $3.
The WRLF has a number of videos – from a video describing the need for conversation to conversations, hikes, events and programs. It’s a great way to learn more about WRLF!
