Want to learn about South Florida's birds? Interested in becoming a birder? Or just want to start identifying our feathered friends? Then come to Fairchild's Bird Festival.
The Bird Festival kicks off with two days of off-site tours of South Florida bird habitats led by Tropical Audubon Society experts. The Bird Festival then continues at Fairchild with activities for birders of all ages, including presentations by bird experts, bird walks and an amateur bird photo contest and exhibit. You will be able to purchase bird-attracting plants and birding merchandise and enjoy educational activities for the entire family. The 77th Annual Members' Day Plant Sale is also taking place, making it a uniquely special weekend of plants, birds and learning fun.
