Berkshire County Wildlife Sanctuary Trails Reopen
Trails at Mass Audubon's wildlife sanctuaries at Pleasant Valley in Lenox and Canoe Meadows in Pittsfield have been reopened to users after being off-limits to the public for nearly two months because of the coronavirus pandemic.
But the Pleasant Valley's nature center and buildings remain closed.
A science-based framework was used to determine which sanctuaries are deemed safe to be reopened at this time, said Becky Cushing, director of Berkshire Wildlife Sanctuaries. However, facilities such as the offices and restrooms at Pleasant Valley will remain closed. Although there will be no admission charge, donations are encouraged.
Social-distancing guidelines remain in place, and the public is being asked to wear face coverings, park only in designated areas and avoid "high-touch surfaces" such as benches and play areas, she said.
