Ecology snowshoe outing or hike on Sheep Hill and Bee Hill sponsored by the WRLF

The Williamstown Rural Lands Foundation is sponsoring a snow shoe or hike on Sheep Hill and the WRLF's Fitch Trail Sunday afternoon March 27. Snow shoers/hikers should meet at the Sheep Hill, Route 7 south in Williamstown, at 1 PM. The hike will be led by Jake Blessing, a 2009 Williams Biology graduate and former Williams Outing Club naturalist. Jake has recently returned from working on a study of Western bluebirds in Carmel Valley, California, and is planning a research project before entering graduate school.

Sheep Hill is a conservation property and the headquarters of the WRLF, with panoramic views over the open meadow hillside to Mt. Greylock and the surrounding North Berkshire landscape. The Fitch Trail is across Bee Hill Road from Sheep Hill. The wooded property may provide an opportunity to find clues to the animal life through tracks and signs. WRLF has a limited number of snowshoes to lend. The hike is free and open to the public.

The WRLF is a member-supported non-profit land conservation trust celebrating its 25th year in 2011. The WRLF holds programs and events year round at its Sheep Hill headquarters and on its other WRLF conservation properties. Sheep Hill is located one mile south of the Williamstown rotary on Route 7.
