Eastern Florida State College
The 21st Annual Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival is set to build off the success of its previous iterations to deliver a truly incredible nature-based experience. The event will take place from the 24th to the 29th of January 2018 this year, and will be held at Eastern Florida State College in Titusville, Florida. With World Class Photographers, Field Workshops Presentations and Classes all taking place during the event, it is not hard to understand why this is the largest Birding & Wildlife Festival in the United States. Add to this the international exhibitions that cover everything birding and wildlife related and you have the formula for a truly spectacular event.
This time round, Rockjumper is proud to be represented by Ric Zarwell, who is very much looking forward to attending the event, and will gladly help you with any queries you may have.
As with every year previously, the Martin Luther King weekend of 2018 hails in the Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival. A Globally Important Bird Area, Morro Bay offers pristine beaches, beautiful state parks, panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and, best of all, thousands of birds – with a species count typically over 200 during the weekend.
With a weekend packed with birding and nature field trips and presentations, there is certainly plenty to keep participants busy and happy. On top of this, there are two keynote presentations. One of these will be from our very own George Armistead.
George is excited to be participating this year, and can’t wait to meet others in between all the birding and speaking!
This family-oriented weekend getaway really has something for everyone.
Set in the prestigious Champagne Sports Resort, the non-birding sports enthusiast, as well as the relaxation-seeking spa-lover, will have plenty of time to engage in activities that fulfil them; while you and other like-minded birders take part in birding lectures and guided walks.
This is your chance to have a unique “Rockjumper Birding Experience”, and get whisked away on bird walks by our highly experienced and knowledgeable guides. They will also deliver lectures on current birding trends and topics, and will be available during social times to discuss and share stories of their adventures. This promises to be a very fulfilling and enlightening time.
Celebrating their 16th year, the annual Wings Over Water Birding Festival celebrates the incredible variety of migratory birds that flock to the coastal waters of Drayton Harbour, Birch Bay and Semiahmoo Bay.
Participants can expect to be endlessly entertained by a variety of field trips, workshops, a reception, art exhibits and much besides.
In 2018, Rockjumper will be represented by Ric Zarwell, who is very much looking forward to enjoying what is sure to be a wonderful weekend.
