Featured community highlights this week: Boardwalks through nature are a way to explore without damaging the wildlife and also provide accessibility to those who may not be able to traverse a rockier path. The new accessible boardwalk nature trail at the Silvio O. Conte Wildlife Refuge in Hadley provides an easy walk with views of fields, forests, wetlands and the Fort River. Come check it out during a guided nature walk on Sunday, October 11 from 10am-12pm. This relaxed guided tour by a Hitchcock Center naturalist will provide an opportunity to catch a glimpse of autumn colors, migrating birds, micro-ecosystems and more. Feel free to bring binoculars and field guides. Registration required/limited space. 413-256-6006. 69 Moodybridge Road, Hadley, MA. (FREE)
