New River Birding & Nature Festival
April 27, 2015 - May 2, 2015
Since 2002, the annual New River Birding & Nature Festival has taken place in and around the New River Gorge National River in West Virginia. It’s in the heart of the upland hardwood forests that Cornell Lab of Ornithology has identified as a crucial stopover habitat for the continued survival of species such as Golden-winged, Blue-winged, and Swainson’s Warbler, as well as the Scarlet Tanager. This birdwatching nature festival highlights more than 100 bird species on a variety of birding tours.
A friendly birding vacation for everyone, the week-long event features guided birding and nature excursions, world-class speakers, the finest collection of guides, tasty food, and a back-porch atmosphere unmatched by any other birding festival. Signature guided birdwatching experiences include the opportunity to visit a wide range of habitats, world-class instruction for those wanting to enhance their birding skills, and the best guide-to-guest ratio on the festival circuit.
