Event's DetailsOne of the most spectacular habitats that Mass Audubon protects in central MA is a property called High Ledges. Join Doug Williams, Stony Brook sanctuary director, and Karen Stein, Moose Hill sanctuary director as we explore this beautiful 616 acre site which provides spectacular views of the town of Shelburne Falls, the Deerfield River valley and Mount Graylock.
In addition to the scenery, there are ample opportunities to view a great variety of unusual and beautiful ferns, orchids, and other wild flowers including foamflower, miterwort, painted trillium, and jack in the pulpit.
This area is also home to a great variety of interior forest birds such as black-throated green warblers and scarlet tanagers, as well as species such as chestnut sided warbler and indigo buntings that tend to be associated with more open habitats.
This trip includes round-trip transportation from Stony Brook in Norfolk, MA and a picnic lunch. We will be hiking several miles so pack accordingly. You will need to carry water, sun and insect protection, any personal items you may need for the day, good hiking shoes/boots, and other items such as binoculars and cameras.
Live closer to Moose Hill in Sharon? The van will leave Moose Hill at 6:30 am to travel to Stony Brook and pickup the rest of the group. Please indicate your interest in meeting at Moose Hill when you register using the tickets available link.
