Bring friends and family to celebrate maple season, mud season and waning winter at Williamstown Rural Lands’ winter open house at Sheep Hill, a conservation property and the headquarters of the WRLF, from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 2.

Activities will include an animal tracks and winter ecology hike, and sledding and snowshoeing on the hill if snow returns to the Berkshires.

Inside the farmhouse, there will be seasonal craft activities, and maple treats to celebrate the maple syrup season.

The event is open to all ages, with a suggested donation of $3.

Sheep Hill is on Cold Spring Road, Route 7, one mile south of the town rotary. Information: (413) 458-2494 or
