Great Places: The Mohawk Indian Trail

Saturday, May 24, 2014, 10am to 3pm

Join the cofounder and Executive Director of the Eastern Native Tree Society (ENTS), as he takes us on another memorable journey in the Great Places series. Experience the enthralling eloquence of old-growth evangelist and forest ecology expert Bob Leverett as he entertains, enraptures, and enlightens in this exceptional mountain environment. As in all the programs in the Great Places series, this is not only a trip through an area of exquisite beauty, but also an opportunity to learn about the natural environment and human history and culture - and of course, there are the trees!

with Bob Leverett

Location: Charlemont, Massachusetts, in the scenic Berkshire Mountains

The Mohawk trail was a native American trade and travel route from the Atlantic seaboard to the interior of the Northeastern wilderness. Bob will lead us on a section of this historic trail along a high ridge in Mohawk Trail State Forest. Through his late wife, Jani Leverett, a full-blooded Choctaw-Cherokee native American who served as a Massachusetts chairperson of the American Indian Movement (A.I.M.), Bob developed a deep and on-going connection with Indians of the northeast and farther afield. This is an unparalled opportunity to learn from a teacher with authentic knowledge of this historic Native American site.
