Explore the chilly life of the wintering birds of Berkshire County with Zach Adams from Mass Audubon’s
Berkshire Sanctuaries. Zach will discuss which birds spend their winters near us as well as how they find
food and how they stay warm. You may be surprised by the incredible stories and species that brave the
cold and snow of New England. Mass Audubon’s Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, located in Lenox,
MA has been a site for conservation and education for over 90 years. With 5 additional wildlife
sanctuaries, Mass Audubon protects almost 3,000 acre of land or nature and people in Berkshire County
Zach has been studying birds since his childhood when he fell in love with the sounds of wood ducks and redwing blackbirds in the marshes. He holds a BS in Environmental Science from Juniata College and has worked as an educator and program leader, since the age of 16. From reptiles and amphibians to live skulking sparrows, he enjoys
teaching on any topic in nature. Zach has been a Teacher Naturalist for Mass Audubon’s Berkshire Sanctuaries since November 2018 where he leads programs in birding, hiking, tracking, and canoeing. He is extremely passionate about ornithology and the opportunity to share his love for birds with everyone around him. Each bird song is a glimpse into a different world, and little can deflate the smile when you hear your first warbler sing.
