Birds of a Feather Festival

You don’t want to miss the Birds of a Feather Festival coming to Flagler County! Spanning three days, from February 5th—February 7th 2016, come enjoy a weekend of birding, workshops, presentations, kayak trips and family activities. This City of Palm Coast event is geared toward serious birders—as well as beginners and families.

 

The Birds of a Feather Fest is the brainchild of Palm Coast residents and birding enthusiasts Jason and Mary Giraulo. Jason Giraulo is the City’s Digital Communication Coordinator and Director of the festival.  Participants can choose as much or as little as they’d like over the three days, and some activities are free. 32 birding trips and classes will be offered, to such outstanding birding spots as Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and Princess Place Preserve. The festival also offers plenty of activities for non-birders, too.  There are even kayak trips and craft projects for the little ones.

 

Flagler County is a birder’s paradise, featuring more than 125 miles of hiking, biking and walking trails, miles of coastline, varied habitats and more than 200 identified species. There are very few places that offer as many wonderful opportunities to enjoy nature all while being so connected, accessible and clean.

 

The City of Palm Coast is seeking volunteers for the Birds of a Feather Fest. Volunteer tasks will include assisting speakers, staffing registration and information booths, and providing program support. Time slots are flexible and available throughout the day. Below are descriptions for the volunteer opportunities that are available. All volunteers must attend mandatory training in November and undergo a background check. For more information, contact Denise Bevan at 386-986-2458 or email at dbevan@palmcoastgov.com.
