Explore Satan’s Kingdom Wildlife Management Area
Explore Satan’s Kingdom Wildlife Management Area in Northfield with Greening Greenfield and the Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst on Sunday, Nov. 13, from 1 to 3:30 p.m.
Join wildlife ecologist Pat Serrentino and tree enthusiast Nancy Hazard for an exploration of the forest, ponds and wetlands in the 1,300-acre Satan’s Kingdom. It will be a relaxing walk through a mixed hardwood forest, with scattered ponds and vernal pools. Discussions will include the nut-bearing trees important to wildlife. You’ll listen and look for resident birds and other animals. You’ll learn how animals and plants prepare for winter.
The walk will be easy to moderate in difficulty. Wear sturdy shoes and warm clothes. Binoculars will be helpful, but not required. The walk is free and geared toward adults and children age 8 and older. Hikers will meet at Cherry Rum Plaza’s north end at 12:30 p.m., or the small parking lot off Old Vernon Road. It will be limited to 12 participants, so register by calling Edie Heinemann at 413-465-1646 or mailing her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
