As part of their celebration of National Preservation Month during May, the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation will offer two Memorial Day weekend programs at the state's highest peak, the Mount Greylock State Reservation.

This Sunday, May 26, you're invited to come and discover the planned “Parkitecture” of historic Bascom Lodge, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. All ages are welcome for an approximately 30-minute tour, which starts at 1 and 2 P.M. The tour route is wheelchair accessible.

On Monday, Memorial Day, at 1 and 2 P.M. you can explore "A Tower of Remembrance", Mount Greylock’s historic Massachusetts Veterans War Memorial Tower. Each 20-minute tour will reveal the story behind this 93-foot tall majestic monument and its beacon that can be seen for miles, as well as recent renovation efforts.

For both of these events, you're asked to meet at the summit near the tower. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and there is a parking fee. For more information call (413) 499-4262.
