The Canaan Valley Birding Festival welcomes all levels of birders and nature lovers. The theme for this year’s key note presentations will be Wetland and Grassland Birds. Canaan Valley, WV (only 2.5 hours from Washington, DC with the upgrades to Hwy 48), because of its diverse high elevation boreal habitats, is fortunate to be the breeding ground for many neo-tropical birds, but it also has beautiful grasslands and boggy wetlands. Come join us; see and hear birds while enjoying our cool summers, memorable mountains, grasslands and wetlands and enjoy the newly renovated Canaan Valley Resort and its amenities.
The schedule will have 3 all-day walks on Friday and Saturday (leaving
around 5:30 AM) which will bring you back to the lodge in time to relax
or explore the area before the evening key note and evening sounds walk.
We will also have half-day walks, starting Thursday afternoon,
including some afternoon nature walks, if you prefer. Half-day beginner
walks will meet at 8AM. A birding photography strand will be a new
addition this year. We highly suggest carpooling with each other to the
birding sites. Our volunteer leaders would love to share their passion
for our birds with you. Hope you will join us and bring a friend.
