American Birding Expo

The American Birding Expo, one of the largest wildlife events in the country, is returning to the Philadelphia area. Sponsored by Bird Watcher’s Digest in association with the American Birding Association and Audubon Pennsylvania, you’ll discover the whole world of birding in one place. Exhibitors from all over the world will be on hand with a diverse array of outdoor products, including clothing, binoculars, spotting scopes, cameras, birding accessories – everything for the nature enthusiast. New this year is an Indoor Optics Range that lets visitors try out all the latest viewing technology in a virtual nature setting. Ecotourism will be one of the major highlights of this year’s Expo with over 65 providers on site from all over the world. Each day features free morning bird walks, educational seminars, demonstrations and special presentations. New birders are invited to participate in special skill-building workshops. Over a dozen presentations are scheduled, from such renown experts as Noah Strycker, author of “Birding Without Borders,” WHYY’s Mike McGrath, host of “You Bet Your Garden,” and Carrie Barron, Assistant Director of John James Audubon Center in Mill Grove, PA. SPECIAL APPEARANCE: Actress and birding enthusiast Lili Taylor, who has appeared in films such as “Mystic Pizza,” “I Shot Andy Warhol “and “The Conjuring,” as well as TV series including “American Crime” and “Six Feet Under” will give a special presentation on how the tools she uses as an actor are useful when birding. “Family Day Sunday” will have numerous kid-friendly activities centered around birds and animal preservation. A portion of the proceeds goes directly to the Expo Conservation Fund which supports bird conservation and environmental education.
