Traditionally, March is the busiest time for syrup producers in New England. As the days begin to warm, sugar-rich sap starts to flow upward from its winter storage in the trees’ roots to the twigs and buds; it is this sap that has been harvested for generations to produce maple products throughout the region. Sugaring has been going on in Hopkins Forest since the mid-80s when Williams College students constructed a sugar house in an existing maple grove.

There is something about a snapshot. It records a passage of time. The density of color in some of the pictures, the authentic black & whites. They almost feel part of a movement and have their own identity- something a little lacking in the quick-fire shutterbugging with smart phones today. "It's A Snap" in Easthampton is an exhibit of anonymous snapshots gathered by top collectors that provide a multi-layered and though-provoking look into a particular era.

New Years Day lends itself to reflection, prompting us to think of all that passed in the previous year and all that's to come in the new one. Families can bring nature into their reflection by participating in an organized community First Day hike, or by finding their own place to explore on their own. Hiking to a high place and watching life in your community from above can provide some much needed perspective on your family's place within what you see.
