The New River Birding & Nature Festival is located in and around the New River Gorge National River. Administrated by the National Park Service, this area is the heart of the upland, hardwood forests that Cornell Lab of Ornithology has identified as a crucial stopover habitat for the continued survival of species such as Golden-winged, Blue-winged, and Swainson's Warbler, as well as the Scarlet Tanager.
The festival will include a wide array of educational and entertainment opportunities: Guarantee vans, birding by boat, birding in nature, hands-on bird banding, world-class speakers and artists, to name a few. The New River Birding and Nature Festival will highlight more than 100 species of birds.
