The Great Adirondack Birding Celebration (GABC) returns this coming June 3-5 for the 18th time.

Following a COVID-induced break, this 3-day event is designed to introduce birders of all ages and skill levels to the unique boreal bird species and habitats in the Adirondacks. The celebration features birding field trips to local Important Bird Areas (IBAs), with full day field trips on Friday and half day trips on Saturday and Sunday, and presentations by accomplished ornithologists on Saturday afternoon. Click here for the full schedule of events.

The field trips have limited capacity, so be certain to register soon. Pay attention to the date and specific field trip when registering (we want to make sure you register for the trip that you want!). The Great Adirondack Birding Celebration is hosted by the Paul Smith’s College Visitor Interpretive Center. The VIC is partnering with Hotel Saranac to host the celebration.
