This two-and-a-half hour birding field trip to Heaven Hill Farm and the John Brown Homestead in Lake Placid offers the opportunity to see a wide variety of birds, including those which make their home in meadowland, successional meadows, and woodland. Participants meet at the Heaven Hill Farm parking area, off Bear Cub Road in Lade Placid. Heaven Hill Farm is a 600-acre farm, formerly owned by Henry Uihlein and now administered by the Uihlein Foundation. The acreage includes meadowland, successional meadows, and woodland. The field trip continues with a trip to the John Brown State Historic Site, located just outside of the village of Lake Placid. The birds normally seen at the John Brown homestead in early June are those which inhabit successional fields. A network of easy-access trails through mixed hardwood-conifer forest and hardwood forest provides opportunities to see a variety of warblers.
