The Allegany Nature Pilgrimage is an annual outdoor learning experience that combines fun with a variety of nature oriented activities and welcomes both the seasoned naturalist and the inquisitive beginner. The Pilgrimage is organized by a committee of volunteers from four area Audubon Societies: Buffalo Audubon Society, Audubon Community Nature Center in Jamestown, Presque Isle Audubon Society in Erie, and Burroughs Audubon Nature Club in Rochester.

Participants can rent cabins and campsites in New York's Allegany State Park, stay at local hotels or commute.

Cost: $25 for Audubon members, $35 for non-Audubon Members, $5 for children 12-17. (Adult reservations after April 24 will cost $45.)

There are 80+ trips and walks throughout the weekend. Each trip is led by a teacher, professor, PhD, expert or someone sharing their lifelong passion. Additional activities will include evening programs and a live music Folk Concert on Saturday.

Jun 11 - 14 All Day Southern Adirondack Audubon | 16th Annual Hamilton County Birding Festival

Speculator, Lake Pleasant, Piseco, Blue Mountain Lake,
Indian Lake, Long Lake, Raquette Lake and Inlet

In June, the Adirondack Birding Festival in Hamilton County celebrates the height of breeding season with 4 days of birding hikes, walks, safaris, outings and presentations throughout the county.

Nesting birds, rising trout, rushing water, wildflowers, and the newborn of many species make the woods and waters of Hamilton County a desirable location to explore. While birding in the park is enjoyable throughout the entire year, during springtime it is a place of excitement and discovery. By June, all of the birds that migrate to the Adirondack region for the summer have arrived and are in the height of breeding season.

All of the outings and presentations during the birding festival are FREE. Registration is required for each outdoor event. Registration is appreciated, but not necessary, for the evening presentations.

Call in advance to confirm. Call (518) 548-3076 or (800) 648-5239 to register!
