The trip will take us to active waterfowl gathering places near the shoreline of the St. Lawrence River, stopping along the way to sample the bird life in the raptor-rich agricultural fields near Massena. Participants will meet in the Paul Smith's College VIC building at 7:30 AM. The vans will depart at 8:00 AM. We will return to the VIC at about 3:00 PM. Our exact itinerary is subject to change.
