This event-driven festival in the Adirondack Wild will include three days of bird watching hikes, walks, driving safaris, seminars and more.

Participants will enjoy a dinner cruise on the W.W. Durant cruise ship (fee associated), hiking expeditions along the Roosevelt Truck Trail in Newcomb, and the newly opened Former Finch and Pruyn Lands on the Chain of Lakes Road in Indian Lake, and much more. On Saturday afternoon Joan Collins, a NYS licensed guide, writer and birding expert, will present a talk on the “Unique Boreal Species” found inside the Adirondack Park at the Adirondack Museum.
