What we're about

Hello! Welcome to the MeetUp page for the Berkshire (Western Mass) Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club! Our motto is "Your Connection to the Outdoors" and with stewardship and fun, we hope to continue to connect with you as well. Unique from other groups, we offer more than just hiking or other outdoor activities. We offer training and volunteer opportunities for you to do more of what you love and get other people involved too. Only a sample of the chapter's activities are posted on Meetup, so please visit: http://activities.outdoors.org/search/index.cfm/action/main/ to see the entire list of current activities and opportunities in our, and other surrounding chapters. We hope you will consider becoming a member to help us continue offering these types of programs, and if you are a member, we hope you will become involved and fill our Meetup page with new activities!

Chapter Potluck: Wildlife of the Berkshires, Invasive Water Chestnuts

In addition, hear long-time environmentalist biologist Cynthia Boettner from the Silvio Conte Fish and Wildlife Refuge speak about this passion of hers: Invasive European Water Chestnuts.
