  • Winter Blitz – An energy efficiency, community-service program serving low-income households in the region that mobilizes hundreds of volunteers from Williams, Bennington and MCLA.
  • Hopkins Memorial Forest – While not on the immediate campus, Hopkins Forest is only a short walk or an even shorter bike ride away.  This 2600 acre reserve is Williams College owned and is managed by the Center for Environmental Studies.  Be sure to visit for Fall Fest or Maple Fest or just to enjoy a nice walk in the woods.
