Orange Audubon Society (OAS) is helping to organize the 2nd Lake Apopka Wildlife Festival & Birdapalooza—celebrating Lake Apopka and its North Shore. Some of the activities at this free admission event include bus tours (one actually leaving at 8:30 a.m.) of the North Shore and air boat rides on Lake Apopka, nature and photo hikes (reserve a spot in advance for tours and hikes at www.birdapalooza.com/tours/), tree giveaway, lots of nature-oriented information, music and other entertainment, kids’ activities, and merchandise and food sales.
Check out the list of participating exhibitors at the website. Last year’s inaugural Lake Apopka Wildlife Festival and Birdapalooza was an overwhelming success with an estimated attendance of ~4,400 people. Eighty-two bird species were reported by trip leaders to the OAS booth during the one-day event. All walking tours were well attended and all eight buses were standing room only.
Look forward to seeing you there!
