Join the “Tour de Pownal” Fall Bike Ride! Co-presented by HooRWA and the Pownal Recreation Task Force, this 18-mile “figure 8” loop ride begins and ends at the former Mack Molding parking area off Route 346 in Pownal, at Lincoln Street. The “Tour” includes an optional shortcut for a 10-mile version of the ride, or extension for a 23-mile version. (Note: the route is paved except for a one-mile section of hardpack gravel on Indian Massacre Road.) Bring snacks and water. Meet at 9:45 a.m. for a 10 a.m. start.
Preregister by September 27 and you will receive an email that morning if weather forces us to reschedule for the following morning.
Maps and cue sheets for all three of the tour’s versions are posted at: https://ridewithgps.com/users/842867/route
Rivers and Reverence
This fall, from October 7 through November 3, the Hoosic River Watershed Association and the Clark Art Institute will host Rivers and Reverence, a series of programs exploring how the Hoosic River, its tributaries, and watershed contribute to our sense of home here in the Berkshires. This program will culminate in an exhibition of 50 photographs taken by community members. You can learn how to submit a photograph by visiting the post Rivers and Reverence on this website or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The 5th Annual Berkshire Natural History Conference will be held this year at the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA. A day long series of short presentations on the natural history of the Berkshires.
