Please help us celebrate our return to the site of our first Berkshire Natural History Conference.

This annual event will bring natural history home to the Berkshires. We are really excited to gather programs and like-minded people together to help understand and appreciate the deep natural heritage that surrounds us all in the Berkshires.
