The Orlando Wetlands Festival returns February 15, 2020, to highlight the Orlando Wetlands Park, the City’s 1,650 acre water reclamation wetland.
Bring your camera and join guided photo hikes led by professional photographers. For those who like to sit and ride, guided bus tours will travel along the wetland berms, giving riders a chance to experience firsthand, Florida’s wild wetlands.
Event co-sponsor, Orange Audubon Society, will lead guided bird-watching excursions. The Friends of the Orlando Wetlands will lead wetland exploration hikes and the Florida Native Plant Society will lead native plant identification hikes.
In addition to the numerous guided tours, there will be bird-banding and mist-netting demonstrations, as well as live music throughout the day.
There will be interactive children’s activities, bounce houses, hay rides and much more for the young guests. Plus, free native wildflowers and backyard wildlife plants will be given away to encourage biodiversity.
The best part? Admission, parking and all events are FREE. Food /beverage will be available for purchase. Please leave pets at home.
The festival takes place from 9am to 3pm at Fort Christmas Historical Park in Christmas. For more information, visit cityoforlando.net/wetlands or register for free tickets and reminders at orlandowetlandsfestival.eventbrite.com.
