Birds and Wine – A Great Pairing!

Join Audubon on September 18 and 19, 2015 for a camping trip to the Finger Lakes wine and bird country. We will visit the Montezuma Wildlife Management Area & National Wildlife refuge to witness the annual fall bird migration, especially the shore birds that use the Montezuma ponds as resting spots. We will follow this with stops at local wineries for a taste of the famous local wines. Camping on Friday and Saturday nights will be at the Cayuga State Park on the west shore of Cayuga Lake. There will be camping fees and some fees associated with wine tasting. This trip is limited to fourteen people, so sign up early! Plan to arrive Friday evening the 18th and depart Sunday morning.

There are plenty of campsites, so it is not necessary to reserve one prior to this trip. But, if you are not the tent-camping type, and want to reserve a camping cabin, go to to check cabin availability. Please sign-up with Audubon if you reserve a cabin so that you are included in our group limit of fourteen people. To sign up, contact Audubon by September 5th at or call 253-9250.
