Memorial Day Canoe Trip -- near Bart's Cobble and CRs along the Housatonic

If you sign up for the canoe trip along the winding Housatonic this Memorial Day weekend (clicker HERE to learn more and register), you will enjoy the beauty of this meandering river as it passes through agricultural fields and floodplain forests, some of which are protected with conservation restrictions held by The Trustees. As is the case with many of our reservations, the landscape surrounding Bartholomew's Cobble is protected by restrictions with the property owned and cared for by private farmers and landowners.

On this tour, you'll learn about the river's history and what is happening to restore some of its most precious habitats and species from its upper reaches in Pittsfield, through Massachusetts and into Connecticut. Paddles, life preservers, and boats are provided. Please pre-register.
