Old Grove Forest Walking Tour

June 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This June, the Amherst History Museum is pleased to offer once more one of our most popular tours to look at and talk about a local old growth forest that is home to a Black Birch that is among the largest trees of that species in Massachusetts. This hike will be led by Elisa Campbell who took noon-time walks in the wilder parts of this old forest. One day 20 or more years ago she realized that the tree she was standing next to had bark that looked like the bark she had seen on trees duringĀ  “Old Growth Walks” led by the Massachusetts expert on Old Growth, Bob Leverett. So she started exploring the area, bringing other people to explore it, and writing about it for the Amherst Bulletin and the Sierra Club. She is glad to be able to share it with more people now.
