Adirondack Birding Festival Setting
Hamilton County is over one million acres of the Adirondack State Park. With over 60% being classified as either Wilderness or Wild Forest, it is one of the best locations to watch boreal birds. Now in its 11th year, the Hamilton County Birding Festival brings together bird watchers from all over the United States to explore and discover the amazing birds of the Adirondacks.
As you will be in the Adirondacks, you should be prepared for all types of weather phenomena, including heat, humidity, rain, cold, and even snow. Though June is typically filled with warm days and cool evenings, you can never be sure about the weather you will find.
Birding Tour Organizer
The Hamilton County Department of Economic Development works with the county’s business community – both existing and proposed – in business and marketing planning and assistance. Its overall mission is to grow the county’s private sector business assets and foster job creation.
Since the majority of the county’s business community is involved in tourism – related enterprises, both Economic Development and Tourism are combined in one Hamilton County department.
