Celebrate the diversity and wonder of Lake County’s birds, wildflowers and natural resources at the 3rd Annual Wings and Wildflowers Festival, to be held Oct. 3-5 at Venetian Gardens in Leesburg, Florida.
Enjoy field trips in birding hotspots and wildflower havens and experience presentations from some the nation’s top birding, wildflower and nature experts.
Keynote speakers include Greg Miller, the inspiration behind the star-studded film “The Big Year,” Stacy Tornio, editor of “Birds & Blooms,” and Roger L. Hammer, an award-winning naturalist and author who served as the director of Castellow Hammock Nature Center in Miami.
The festival will showcase Lake County’s enticing outdoor recreational opportunities, particularly for birders. Birds flock to Lake County, which is home to thousands of acres of preserves and passive parklands, including the Lake Apopka Restoration Area, Ferndale Preserve, Emeralda Marsh and the Hilochee Wildlife Management Area.
