PAUL SMITHS — The Adirondack Park Agency Visitor Interpretive Center at Paul Smiths will become “Adirondack Birding Headquarters” for the seventh annual Great Adirondack Birding Celebration on June 5-7. It will include birding field trips, trail walks, canoe trips, exhibits, lectures and the popular Teddy Roosevelt Birding Challenge.

This year, the Adirondack Park Institute, the nonprofit friends group of the Paul Smiths and Newcomb VICs, will begin hosting this perennial spring favorite.

A few changes have been made to the Great Adirondack Birding Celebration for 2009. A registration fee will be charged this year as follows: individual registration, $35; family registration, $50. Registration entitles participants to the following: the dessert reception and Owl Prowl at White Pine Camp (June 5); the morning field trips (June 6-7); the June 6 barbecue lunch at the VIC; and a one-year membership to the Adirondack Park Institute.

All indoor GABC programs on June 6 at the Paul Smiths VIC are free and open to the public, and registration is not required.

For more information about the Great Adirondack Birding Celebration, contact Martha Van der Voort at the Adirondack Park Institute’s Paul Smiths office at (518) 327-3376. The GABC brochure, full schedule and registration information are available as PDF downloads on the VIC Web site (
