Boreal Birding Festival

The three-day Boreal Birding Festival features birding hikes, walks, safaris, outings and seminars throughout the forests that surround the hamlets of Long Lake, Indian Lake, Speculator, Raquette, Blue Mountain Lake, Piseco, Morehouse, Lake Pleasant and Inlet. More than half of the county’s million-plus acres are classified as wilderness or wild forest, making it a prime location for watching boreal birds. All field trips are free. Registration for events is required.
