2025 Birds in the Hills Festival

(Stay Tuned!)

We greatly appreciate the support and participation of everyone who attended the 2024 Birds in the Hills!

Stay tuned for details on next year's dates and location as we strive to diversify and expand.

Whether you're a beginner or an experienced birder, we welcome you to join us and connect with others who share our love for birdwatching. 

Come and experience the stunning spring migration in Appalachia!

The Birds in the Hills Festival features a variety of habitats for you to explore, including reclaimed prairie, early successional forest, and mature hardwoods. This allows for a diverse and exciting array of bird species to be observed.

We had the pleasure of observing 71 different species during the 2024 Birds in the Hills Festival! Check them out on our t-shirt fundraising campaign.

Vendor spots will be available for nature-inspired artists! Artists are able to choose from five time slots that are available throughout the weekend. No entry fee is required, just a small 10% contribution from all sales. Vendors receive a Free Weekend Pass, a $50 dollar value.
