Celebrate the annual trek of millions of songbirds from their
tropical homes to their summer breeding grounds! This Festival is one
of the main events for Goose Creek State Park during the year and is
lots of fun for all ages! Activities throughout the day include
bird-related hikes, games, crafts and programs for everyone from
intense birders to families looking for a fun day out. The Festival
will be highlighted by a "Birds of Prey - LIVE!" show and a
Bird-a-thon Competition, in which teams, from beginner to advanced,
compete for prizes by attempting to identify as many bird species as
they can during the day (or the night prior too!). This annual
festival is free to the public. Contact Goose Creek State Park by
phone or email for more information.
