Hitchcock Center for the Environment is in Amherst, Massachusetts.
Amherst, Massachusetts
JOIN IN FLORA & FAUNATHON! We love this view of the Pioneer Valley from Bare Mountain in Amherst, Mass shared by team Pink Mantis Crew.

Their team has observed local plant species like Striped Maple, Solomon’s Plume, and found Genus Narceus, AKA an American Giant Millipede. They have raised $340+ for The Hitchcock Center, and say: “We are are here to support not only the Hitchcock Center, but each other and our community. Amazing, earth loving, crunchy, queer. Sound like you? Join the Pink Mantis Crew!”

You can join the fun celebrating our communities and biodiversity by supporting one of our teams or starting your own: https://tinyurl.com/yc8edbd7

Hitchcock Center for the Environment posted a video to playlist Trail Cam Thursdays.
It’s Trail Cam Thursday! We had a special visitor show up on the cam- a local carnivore! This coyote crossed Stumps Field recently, probably following the trail of a rabbit, opossum, or one of the deer that use the field to graze. Credit goes to Environmental Educator Jeff’s Homeschool Program students for placing this cam.

What should we name this new neighbor? 🐶 Leave your suggestions in the comments!
