Williamstown: Hopkins Forest to host nature activities


Hopkins Memorial Forest will host a pair of spring nature activities on Saturday, May 3.

The day kicks-off from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. with a bird walk around the fields and woods in search of spring migrants and resident birds, and will continue from 10 to 11:30 a.m. with a wildflower walk guided by botanist and Williams College Professor of Biology Joan Edwards.

These two activities are individual; participants may take part in either or both programs, meeting at the Rosenburg Center, near the entrance of Hopkins Forest, located near the junction of Bulkley Street and Northwest Hill Road.

Both activities are free and open to the public. Rugged footwear and outdoor gear are recommended and binoculars are recommended for the bird walk.
