The Town of Sheffield Massachusetts was founded in 1733 and is located in the southern end of Berkshire County which is about two and a half hours from Boston. Sheffield is made up of two villages Ashley Falls and Sheffield.
Sheffield contains the Schenob Brook wetland complex which has been recognized as one of the most sole and intact ecosystems in the world. It is a combination of wide open river valley and mountain vistas and farm land is what makes Sheffield one of the most beautiful towns in Massachusetts with fall being the attraction time of year.
The town has a number of culture and recreational opportunities and ski areas as well as state parks and forests along with summer theatres and music events.
Spend the day with Mom and Mother Earth! Sheffield is a global hotspot for rare species and Bartholomew's Cobble puts on one of the best shows of spring ephemerals from mid-April to mid-May. Come greet the rich variety of wildflowers, and leave with an understanding of how to help identify and protect these gems of our native flora not just in conservation lands, but in your own yard and the open spaces of your community.
A Trustees naturalist will reveal what makes this particular environment so well-suited to rare and diverse plants and explain what the Cobble is doing to protect the natural resilience of this landscape. Please pre-register.
