The NORTH SHORE BIRDING FESTIVAL on Lake Apopka in Central Florida highlights the St. Johns River Water Management District’s 20,00-acre Lake Apopka North Shore, an amazing birding hotspot.
Dates are Thursday November 30th through Monday December 4th.
There will be approximately 70 field trips led by great local and out-of-town leaders and two dinners with keynotes at Wekiwa Springs State Park in the Youth Camp dining hall.
Attractions include sunrise and sunset photography and birding trips, walks focusing on owls and whip-poor-wills, birding by bicycle, birding by kayak, Caracara quest and more.
Each trip has a charge of $30 to $80, with no additional festival registration fee. Proceeds support Orange Audubon Society’s nature and environmental center fund or related educational programs.
