Sorry--today's event has been cancelled.

Saturday, October 27, 2018, 1:00pm - 4:00pm     
                                                                       


Join Ted Watt, Naturalist with the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst, for a hike along an abandoned, still-mostly-black-topped road, that ultimately disappears under the waters of the Quabbin Reservoir. We’ll walk at a relaxed pace from the gate to the old Dana Common, not reaching the reservoir itself. It is a distance of about 2 miles and the road is mostly level. Along the way we’ll look at trees and other aspects of nature. When we get to the Common, with only the building foundations remaining, we’ll explore some of the history that led to the deserted town center. It is a beautiful hike with a poignant ending, evidence of how the needs of a few were sacrificed for the needs of the many… After exploring the Common we’ll retrace our hike back to the cars.

The walk is free, geared to adults and children in grade 4 and above.  The group is limited to 15.  It is co-sponsored by the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst and Greening Greenfield.

Bring binoculars and wear comfortable hiking shoes. Heavy rain cancels. 

Registration begins Monday, October 22nd.
