Family President's Day Weekend at AMC Noble View Outdoor Center, Russell, MA

Friday, February 16, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, February 18, 2018 12:00 AM

Family President's Day Weekend at AMC's Noble View Outdoor Center in the Pioneer Valley, about 1-1/2 hours west of Boston. Activities include hiking, snow shoeing, x-c skiing, and family 'snow fun' like sledding or making snow people! The accommodations are rustic, but comfortable and cozy, heated by wood stoves. The twin beds have mattresses, but we bring pillows, sheets, and blankets or sleeping bags. We need to be flexible regarding sleeping arrangements which may be co-ed to keep families together and some kids will be in sleeping bags on the floor.

DePave the Way! Depaving Party

Saturday, September 9, 2017 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Join AMC and Somerville Climate Action in "depaving" a paved yard in order to allow a permeable surface. Restoring these landscapes to a more natural state allows for better runoff during storms while also providing a better habitat for local wildlife. As Massachusetts most dense city, 77% of Somerville is paved over. Reducing this number (however slightly) benefits all residents while improving the local ecosystems.
