This is where you design and register for a birding and nature vacation to revitalize your mind and body. All you have to do is show up.

Package options range from a single day without lodging as low as $225, to all week with deluxe cabin accommodations. Multiple people and lodging nights are discounted in multi-day Packages. Each day offers a field trip of your choice, three great meals, knowledge and fun packed presentations, and world-class professionals and fellow participants you will call friends!
