Native Restoration


At River Walk, we use plants native to Berkshire County to revegetate as many areas as possible. Plants with local provenance possess adaptations accumulated over eons, making them uniquely suited to the local environment. We use Pamela Weatherbee’s Flora of Berkshire County Massachusetts and Bruce Sorrie and Paul Somers’s Vascular Plants of Massachusetts: A Checklist as our references for native plants. Recorded are more than 150 species of native trees, shrubs and plants and 75 “native native” species propagated from seed collected locally.
