Family Hike & Dip at Monks Pond

By Berkshire Family Hikes August 18, 2021

What lives below the surface of Monks Pond? Maybe a water boatman or even a frog! Join Berkshire Natural Resources Council and Berkshire Family Hikes for a morning of exploration. We’ll enjoy a child-led walk to Monks Pond and spend some time dipping nets to carefully catch and release some of the pond creatures. Wear comfortable clothing for the outdoors and be sure to bring water and bug spray! We will meet at the parking lot of the Brothers trailhead. 

(Rain date: Wednesday, August 25th)
