Florida Birding, Wildlife
and Nature Festivals
From fall through spring Florida not only enjoys its best weather,
this period also furnishes the year’s prime birding and wildlife viewing
Virtually every region in the state celebrates the outdoors with its own birding,
wildlife or nature festival designed to highlight nature’s best in their area. Most are family-type weekend events that are kid-friendly so no one is left out.
Most festivals are held during the same month every year but sometimes dates do change. Check the links for current information.
