Retracing Native Histories – A Walk Through Time
April 27, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Bidwell House Museum is excited to once again host an event during Artweek! Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek is an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring more than 500 unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes experiences. ArtWeek was born in Boston in 2013 and now serves over 100 towns across Massachusetts as the signature nonprofit community program of the Boch Center.
Long before the English arrived in what is now Massachusetts, the Mohicans lived on and worked with the land for thousands of years. During this walk through history, join Rob Hoogs to learn how the Mohicans used the local landscape for hunting, agriculture, maple sugaring and more. As you hike some of the four miles of trails on the 192 acre Bidwell House Museum property, the quiet beauty of the Berkshire upland forest will transport you to another time and place, creating a greater understanding of life in these woods hundreds of years ago.
Please note that the parking area and area in front of the Museum are accessible but the trails are not. Please dress for a hike and bring water or a snack. The walk will happen in light rain or shine, however if a heavy downpour is predicted, the rain date will be Sunday April 28 at 1pm.
