Newcomb, NY – The Adirondack Interpretive Center (AIC) has recently announced a lineup of events to kick off the Spring season including a series of free “mud season movies,” early migrant bird walks, and a one-day introduction to fly fishing workshop. The 2023 mud season movies will be shown every Saturday in April at 1:30 p.m. at the Adirondack Interpretive Center, Newcomb Campus. (More information on the mud season movies in the image above.) The film series is sponsored by the Adirondack Park Institute.
Early Migrant Bird Walks:
- Group size is limited
- Pre-registration is required
The AIC will be going through some staff transitions this Spring, so we haven’t firmed up our popular bird walk schedule. But don’t worry, we will send out a follow-up email some with more dates. We hope you can join us to look for our early arriving avian migrants and resident birds. Depending on conditions, we will either walk along Rich Lake Marsh, Hudson River Fen, or hike the trails at the AIC to see which resident and migrant birds are in the area. Walks are easy rambles and great for beginning birders. Binoculars are available for the walks thanks to Northern New York Audubon.
Saturday May 20th, 8:30 am – 11:30 am
