Lauren Stevens asks What is your watershed address?

Lobby, 6pm.

Everyone has a watershed address, and all of us play a role in watershed ecology. Bascom Lodge is in the Hoosic watershed, which extends from Lanesborough to Arlington, VT, and from the Hoosacs to the Hudson River. The Hoosic River Watershed Association conducts research and monitoring, education and advocacy. Current major projects include a greenway in Hoosick Falls and flood control chute improvements in North Adams.

Lauren Stevens is president of the Hoosic River Watershed Association, Berkshire Eagle environmental columnist, author of Hikes and Walks in the Berkshires and co-author of Most Excellent Majesty, a history of Mount Greylock.
