Folks Came Out to Celebrate the Great Outdoors at the Wakulla Wildlife Festival

Published 04-06-2008
A large crowd came out this past Saturday, April 5, to celebrate nature at the annual Wakulla Wildlife Festival, held at Wakulla Springs State Park, Florida. Festival visitors were able to learn about a number of topics concerning the environment here in Wakulla County, including butterflies, black bears, native snakes, bird life, plant life, and alligators! There were living history exhibits that included a blacksmith demonstration, a spinning exhibition, the art of basket making, and even an old-time moonshine still!

The festival actually began on Thursday, April 3, with premium guided tours on both Thursday and Friday to some of the natural wonders here in Wakulla County, including bird watching at Bald Point State Park, a coastal boat excursion on Apalachee Bay, a hike to Shepherd Springs and the Cathedral of Palms, a songbird tour, a Sounds of the Night excursion, an Endangered Species Experience tour, and much more.
