Begin a Love for Birding With the “Adirondack Birding for All” Program

The Adirondack Land Trust is breaking down barriers to birding, one pair of binoculars at a time!

Are you interested in birdwatching but don’t know where to begin? Starting this summer, the Keene Valley Public Library and Saranac Lake Free Library are loaning backpacks stocked with binoculars and field guides to library-goers looking for an opportunity to try out birding.

The backpacks are part of the Adirondack Land Trust’s “Adirondack Birding for All” program, which is working with libraries to increase awareness and appreciation of Adirondack birds and their habitats.

Offered for free check-out, backpacks are equipped with high-quality Vortex HD binoculars, the Sibley Guide to Birds of Eastern North AmericaAdirondack Birding — 60 Great Places to Find Birds in the Adirondacks, and helpful information on how to use binoculars.
