"Peaking" at Adirondack Birds: A Guided Birding Walk

  • Free

The Adirondack Mountain Club’s Cascade Welcome Center will be hosting 6 free birding walks during the spring.

Each program is open to all ages and aims to connect locals and visitors to the natural wonders of the Adirondack High Peaks Region.

As breeding birds return to the Adirondacks in the spring, it is a great time to start birding! At Cascade Welcome Center, you'll enjoy a pleasant walk on maintained trails through a variety of habitats with an experienced birder, observing many different species and Peak views along the way. Warblers, thrushes, woodpeckers, and more call these woods and wetlands home. In addition to bird observations, participants will learn how different habitats attract different species of birds.

These trips are for all ages and abilities, whether you’ve been birding for years or if it’s your first time. Trips will start with a short introduction at the Center and then head out on the trails. Participants should come prepared with the appropriate clothing (including rain gear and shoes that may get muddy), bug repellent, binoculars (or some can be provided free of charge if needed), sun protection, and water. Trails may be wet at times.

Participants will meet at Cascade Welcome Center on the side porch near the parking lot. Restrooms will be available prior to the trip. The walk will begin promptly at 7:30 A.M. Registration is encouraged, but not required.

This walk is funded by The Cullman Grant awarded by Northern New York Audubon.
