Don’t miss the 12th annual Great Adirondack Birding Celebration. The event will feature an all-day birding trip across the Adirondacks on Friday, a Saturday and Sunday morning field trip to boreal birding hot spots, a keynote lecture and afternoon workshops. Stop in now, and enter to win this year's hand-made loon wall hanging. 

Adopt a Sugar Maple

Support the development of maple sugaring at the VIC by adopting a tree for $50. We'll do the tapping, and you'll be investing in the education of an intern and the equipment to take care of your tree. You'll also get a quart of maple syrup from the tree when it's ready. (Shipping not included) Adoption papers are available at the VIC front desk. Makes a great gift! You can also adopt by mail: Just send a check for $50 (plus $15 for shipping for 1-2 quarts). Make checks payable to the PSCVIC: Paul Smith’s College VIC, 8023 Route 30, Paul Smiths, NY 12970.   

Purchase Some VIC Maple Syrup

We still have a limited supply of VIC handcrafted, wood-fired syrup available. Pint, $10; quart, $18; and half-gallon, $30 (plus shipping).
