Celebrating our heritage through
hiking & walking, biking, & canoeing.
Our Twelvth Annual Heritage Walks Program will be held on two
weekends this Fall:
September 21st & 22nd and October 5th & 6th, 2013.
Come join us on short walks as well as longer hikes,
walking tours of towns and historical buildings, nature
and birding walks, tours of industrial site ruins,
and, a canoe/kayak trip on the river. Historians,
naturalists, and environmentalists will help participants explore:
- The Housatonic River
- The history of the villages and towns in the region as
expressed in archaeological and industrial sites,
architecture, bridges, and monuments,
- Both prominent and unsung geological, ornithological
and horticultural resources, and
- Splendid autumn foliage vistas.
The 2013 Heritage Walks are a partnership of the numerous heritage organizations in the Upper Housatonic River Valley, the Berkshire Visitors Bureau, and the National Park Service.
