Get Outdoors for Berkshire Biodiversity Day!

By Berkshires Macaroni Kid September 13, 2022

On September 17-18 2022 Berkshire Biolblitz will hold a 24 hour biodiversity survey at Brattlebrook Park in Pittsfield, MA. They will be identifying every living thing possible within 24 hours beginning at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Saturday and ending at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Sunday. 

There will be a bird banding event early Saturday morning and an Owl Prowl starts at Dark Saturday evening with Zach from Mass Audobon.

Please meet at the parking lot on Longview Drive. There will be information booths and sign-in sheets to greet you. You can arrive at any time and spend as much time as you like-you don’t have to be there the entire 24 hours.

There will be bird walks, skull identification and insect, plant, fungi walks with experts.

What to bring: Yourself, your friends and family, a waterbottle, field guides (although there will be experts if you need them), rugged shoes for traipsing through the park. There are no bathroom facilities.
