Alex Lamoreaux will be leading field trips!
The North Shore Birding Festival on Lake Apopka is an annual five-day event perfect for birders visiting Florida or locals wanting to learn more from well-known, knowledgeable birding guides! Add to your life list while exploring a unique birding hotspot only 35–45 minutes from Orlando attractions. From Friday, December 2nd, through Monday, December 5th, participate in field trips on the 20,000-acre Lake Apopka North Shore property and other Central Florida hotspots. Keynotes at Wekiwa Springs State Park with catered dinners lead in to evening owl and woodcock walks, and a star walk! The timing of this festival is perfect to see a multitude of overwintering and resident species! The Lake Apopka North Shore has been designated an American Bird Conservancy Globally Important Bird Area, a National Audubon Society State Important Bird Area, an Audubon Florida Special Place, and is on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail.
