Great Adirondack Birding Celebration (GABC)

May 31, 2024 June 2, 2024

The Great Adirondack Birding Celebration (GABC) is designed to introduce birders of all ages and skill levels to the unique boreal bird species and habitats in the Adirondack Park. The celebration features 8 different birding field trips to local Important Bird Areas (IBAs), with full (Friday) and half-day trips (Saturday and Sunday), and presentations by accomplished ornithologists. Field trips have limited capacity so be certain to register soon.  Other activities at the VIC Center include a live, bird-on-hand demonstration with Adirondack Raptors on Saturday afternoon. Keynote presentation by Kyle Horton from Colorado State University in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology. He was a Rose Postdoctoral fellow at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology from 2017–2019. His work addresses a handful of fundamental questions of migration and its biology, including understanding avian flight strategies, long-term phenological change, population estimates, impacts of artificial light, and migration forecasting.

The celebration will be held at the Paul Smith’s College Visitor Interpretive Center in Paul Smiths, NY, with most field trips offsite.

We have a fantastic lodging partner in Hotel Saranac  (Curio Collection by Hilton, 100 Main Street, Saranac Lake, New York 12983).
