Celebrate Florida's wildlife at this beachside festival in Curry Hammock State Park. The Friends of Islamorada Area State Parks is hosting a full day of activities appropriate for the entire family at the Wildlife Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27. Bring your lawn chair, beach towels and spend the day! This festival is part of the 2014 Florida Keys Birding and Wildlife Festival that will run through the weekend with other field trips and seminars. Learn more about the Florida Keys community, participate in the scavenger hunt to win a free festival t-shirt (while supplies last) or let the kids complete a Home Depot for hands-on kids projects. Florida folk singer Grant Livingston will perform from noon to 2 p.m. Burgers and dogs will be served up with proceeds to benefit the day’s hosts, the Friends of Islamorada Area State Parks. Go on self-guided kayak expeditions and beach hikes. Wrap up the day with a free evening astronomy program with Elizabeth Moore, NASA Solar System educator; come look at and learn about the stars!
Admission to the state park is free for festivalgoers the day of the festival.
