  • The Lake Apopka Wildlife Festival & Birdapalooza Birding Festival, January 20-22, 2017, is perfect for birders visiting Florida or locals wanting to learn more from well-known, knowledgeable birding guides. One week before the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, you can add to your life list while exploring a unique birding area. The Festival is only 35–45 minutes from Orlando attractions.

    Participate in field trips on the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore, managed by the St. Johns River Water Management District. Trips will search for as many as possible of the 360+ species documented, plus recently sighted rarities. Timing is perfect to see a multitude of overwintering and resident species.

    On Saturday, January 21st, enjoy the free Birdapalooza Festival, now in its 5th year. At Birdapalooza, you can observe bird banding, take a guided bus ride and/or guided hike to see additional birds, and check out exhibits, music, nature-inspired merchandise sales and food trucks.

    Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night attend exciting keynote talks with meet-and-greets and dinners on Friday and Saturday. Greg Miller of The Big Year fame is the Saturday keynote speaker!
