BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program will host a variety of field trips at local nature sanctuaries in partnership with the 2017 Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival.

The festival, now in its 20th year, is one of the premier birding festivals in the United States, and hosts exhibitors from all over the world.

The Festival, scheduled Jan. 25-30, is based out of the Eastern Florida State College Titusville Campus and has something for everyone – from lectures and short field trips geared to first-time birders and wildlife enthusiasts, to workshops and full-day marathon trips for those who have been observing wildlife for a long time.

Field trips are led by a mix of local experts and tour leaders from all parts of the world. Many of the trip leaders are also presenting on their areas of expertise throughout the event.

The Environmentally Endangered Lands Program, Brevard County’s land conservation initiative, will be hosting 16 festival field trips at 8 local nature sanctuaries as part of the festival.

The field trips will highlight local land conservation efforts and the variety of wildlife and ecosystems being preserved under this unique conservation program.
