Blackwater Falls hosts Mountain State Bird Discovery Weekend


This is the ultimate birding weekend for advanced and beginning birders! The weekend is designed to see and listen to birds in scenic mountain habitats with well-known naturalist/guide Bill Beatty [Bill Beatty Nature] and Janice Runyan of Wellsburg WV as well as indoor presentations with Beatty and Runyan and an evening with live educational birds of the Avian Conservation Center of Appalachia. Join us at Blackwater Falls State Park June 3-5, 2022.

Field trips may include Canaan Valley State Park, Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge, Dolly Sods and Otter Creek wilderness areas and Blackwater Falls State Park. Arguably West Virginia’s best birdwatching region.
