COVER STORY – 25th Annual Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival – CANCELLED

The Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is a must-go-to festival for fabulous field trips, keynote speakers, presentations, workshops, photography and free expo center Wednesday through Saturday! On Saturday, February 5th, we will also feature the 3rd Annual Family Wildlife Adventure Day from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm. The kids will enjoy Workshops, Photography, Nature Journaling, Paint a Pelican, Falconry, Owls, Hawks, Alligators and Bats.

With average temperatures of 74 degrees, that’s all it usually takes to bring birders to one of the largest birding festivals on the east coast. Add in Roseate Spoonbills, Pelicans, Painted Buntings, Florida Scrub-Jays, Red-cockaded Woodpeckers, Manatees, Alligators, and that’s just a start to a fabulous festival! Choose from an amazing array of speakers, workshops, ID courses, keynote speakers from leaders in their fields, evening Sips N Bits, and one of the largest expos at any birding festival. Take an airboat ride, a pontoon boat trip, go kayaking, go offshore.  Along with the amount of exhibit and meeting space the Radisson Resort at the Port is able to offer us, the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is the must go to festival for fabulous field trips and birds!
