Taking photos of birds requires patience, trickery and good camouflage.

Regarded as one of the premier arts and crafts events in the Pocono Mountains, the 23rd Annual Audubon Art & Craft Festival will be held July 18-19 in Hawley, Pennsylvania. This annual event features 30 of the finest wildlife and nature artists, as well as more then 90 fine craftsmen from 16 different states. Many of the artists and craftsmen will be demonstrating how they make their creations, as well as offering them for sale.

The festival provides an educational, fun-filled opportunity for young people to learn about and actually experience first-hand some of nature’s mysteries. The Delaware Valley Raptor Center, formed to care for injured birds of prey, will have live raptors on display as well as continuous lectures about hawks, owls and falcons. There will also be free conservation literature, hand-crafted door prizes, a Nature Film Festival, Nature Center exhibits, puppet-making and plenty of homemade, delicious food.

Funds raised at the festival help provide environmental scholarships to students in the area, conservation programs to schools and community organizations, nature books to schools and libraries, grants to local and international environmental groups and maintain two wetlands in Wayne County.

Don’t forget, this is an indoor, air-conditioned event with plenty of free parking.
