Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary
Set amidst more than 1,000 lush acres in the Berkshires, Pleasant Valley’s varied trails wind through forests, meadows, wetlands, and along the slopes of Lenox Mountain, making this site an excellent location for easy-to-strenuous hiking. While exploring, there’s a good chance you will see evidence of the sanctuary’s most visible wildlife resident, the beaver, via dams, dens, or lodges. Read More
Sanctuary News & Events
Explore the nature of the Berkshires this summer with our experienced camp staff, and connect with old friends and new! Programs are specially designed to spark a child’s curiosity and care for the natural world through hands-on habitat exploration, interactions with wildlife, and creative crafts and projects.
We work with more than 1000 Berkshire County school children from elementary through high school every year, in the classroom and at our sanctuaries, which are “living laboratories” for hands-on learning.
There is lots to do at the Berkshire Sanctuaries in winter—from snowshoeing to learning about animals tracks—we will keep you busy and active. Join us for some winter fun!
