Participate in field trips on the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore property and other Central Florida sites. Our Friday and Saturday night dinner events at Wekiwa Springs State Park include keynote speakers, a catered dinner, and are preceded by walks and workshops and followed by owl and woodcock walks.
Add to your life list while exploring a unique birding hotspot only 35–45 minutes from Orlando attractions. Photographers — fantastic shots await!
The Lake Apopka North Shore is currently the 2nd top eBird hotspot in Florida (passed recently after Hurricane Ian by Fort DeSoto Park. For comparison of hotspots, see this link). Nearly 370 species of birds have been sighted; more than any inland site in the U.S., including the Everglades.
At the 2022 festival, we recorded 172 species, but at the 2023 festival, we recorded 193 species!! See this eBird trip report.
