The Massachusetts Audubon Society says it’s closing in on the final pieces of a more than $1 million capital campaign. One of the projects to be funded by the campaign is a major expansion to the 18th Century program barn at Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary in Lenox. WAMC spoke with Mass Audubon West Director Becky Cushing about how the project will expand the group’s mission to spread natural and environmental education in the region.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
