INSIDE THE FLX: Finger Lakes Birding Festival comes to Cayuga County (podcast)

There’s an exciting event taking shape in Cayuga County. It’s a first for the region, but organizers hope that the Finger Lakes Birding Festival will become a staple in a region ripe with festivals from spring to winter.

This week on Inside the FLX we dive into the details of the inaugural event, which is slated for March 26th – 29th. Montezuma Audubon Center Director Christopher Lajewski was in-studio alongside Sterling Nature Center Director Jim D’Angelo and Karen Kuhl, from Cayuga County’s Office of Tourism to discuss the implications of this exciting event.

A message from the organizers:

“The Montezuma Audubon Center, Braddock Bay Raptor Research, Sterling Nature Center and Onondaga Audubon are proud to announce the Inaugural Finger Lakes Birding Festival March 26-29, 2020 that will feature nearly 50 birding activities including birding tours, lectures, and bird banding workshops at the Montezuma Wetlands Complex, Braddock Bay, Sterling Nature Center and Onondaga Lake.
