Event Type

First meeting! Eastern hemlocks are a vital part of our landscape but are under threat from pests like hemlock woolly adelgid. Join Williamstown Rural Lands on as we begin a community science survey of hemlock health on local public properties. Learn about eastern hemlocks and their role in the ecosystem, how to identify their pests, and how to survey for hemlock woolly adelgid in a regional monitoring initiative. No experience necessary!
We will meet at Margaret Lindley Park and walk out to Hemlock Brook (~0.5 miles one way, flat trail).

For more information, check out the New York State Hemlock Initiative who are extending their reach into Massachusetts with us!

Details of volunteer schedule are coming soon!

Meet/Parking at Margaret Lindley Park (1201 Cold Spring Rd., Williamstown). There is a medium-sized dirt parking lot with some potholes. There are no bathrooms or indoor spaces at this site.

Please check the weather before arriving and bring appropriate clothing (warm, non-cotton layers). Cramp-ons or hiking poles are recommended in case of ice on the trails. A loupe (magnifying glass) will be useful for identification – we have extras!
