Beavers are back! Discover details of the habitats of these fascinating animals that were extinct in the Berkshires from the late 18th to the early 20th century. Despised by some for their unappreciated impact on rivers and streams and loved by others as "ecosystem engineers," beaver shape the environment more than any other species. This course will include four hikes of easy and moderate trails in the Berkshires to explore behaviors and impacts of beavers in our local ecosystems. The hikes should last 2 to 3 hours and will be approximately 2 to 4 miles in distance. Conversation and sharing of expert opinion and local folklore will be encouraged.

Len Gray has been an avid hiker for the last 14 years. His experiences range from hiking 25 trails in Hong Kong to completion of the 46 High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountains. In recent years, he has been exploring trails throughout the Berkshires as a seasonal Lenox resident. He is a hiking guide as part of the crew at Berkshire Camino. Len enjoys the mountains, woods, nature and the people who are also drawn to experience being out on the trails in the Berkshires.
