Old Growth Forest Walking Tour

October 17, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Did you know that the Town of Amherst has an old growth forest in its midst? Did you know that this old growth forest is home to a Black Birch that is among the largest trees of that species in Massachusetts?

This October, the Amherst History Museum is offering two hikes to look at and talk about a local old growth forest and its trees. The hikes will take place on Sunday, October 1 and Sunday, October 22, 10am to noon. Each hike is strictly limited to 12 people and registration is required. The cost is $10.00 for Amherst History Museum members, $15.00 for non-members. The fee supports the ongoing care and maintenance of the “Groom Tree,” the 260 year old sycamore tree that stands in front of the Simeon Strong House, home to the Amherst Historical Society & Museum.
