Inaugural Finger Lakes Birding Festival (Cancelled)

March 26 - March 29

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Finger Lakes Birding Festival that was scheduled for March 26-29. As we all make plans to manage our coronavirus risk, our utmost concern is for the health and safety of our staff and their families, our volunteers, colleagues, and program participants. We are taking these steps to both maintain a healthy environment for our staff and also to be good community members who can help keep the virus from spreading. We will begin refunding registrations as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time and we look forward to seeing you at the festival next year.

March 26-29, 2020

The Finger Lakes Region is a critically important stopover for millions of waterfowl and birds of prey as they migrate north to their breeding grounds. The Montezuma Audubon Center, Braddock Bay Raptor Research, Sterling Nature Center and Onondaga Audubon will lead a variety of birding tours, lectures, and workshops during this four-day event at the Montezuma Wetlands Complex, Braddock Bay Wildlife Management Area, Sterling Nature Center and Onondaga Lake. Participants can expect to see up to three dozen waterfowl species and 20 species of raptors that utilize the region’s forests, wetlands, grasslands and waterways. Discount hotel accommodations and program registrations are available at www.facebook.com/fingerlakesbirdingfestival.

Space is limited and registration is required for all programs.
