The Berkshire forests are buzzing, blooming, twining, gurgling, decaying, and regenerating with the unstoppable forces of nature. In the Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary’s majestic barn, six Berkshires artists share their visions of the complexity and grandeur of the natural world: Carolyn Newberger, Theresa Terry, Pat Hogan, Scott Taylor, Nina Lipkowitz, and Carol Daynard.
On July 27, 2021 Pleasant Valley was hit by a devastating storm. The microburst it produced uprooted or snapped hundreds of mature trees in a swath across the entrance and trail-laden section of the sanctuary. The boardwalk reopened in July 2022 following repairs.
The benefits of nature offered at Mass Audubon's wildlife sanctuaries will now be directly available to patients of three Berkshire health care providers: MACONY Pediatrics of Pittsfield, Volunteers in Medicine Berkshires, and Community Health Programs.
