U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges Complex and their Friends group Florida Keys Wildlife Society (formerly FAVOR) announce their third annual Outdoor Fest—a week of action-packed days filled with family-friendly, mostly free outdoor adventures and hands-on activities—set for Saturday, March 10th through Saturday, March 17th.
The event location spans the four national wildlife refuges established in the Florida Keys – National Key Deer, Crocodile Lake, Great White Heron, and Key West National Wildlife Refuges—and features expert-guided birding, nature walks, and kayak trips; evening wildlife programs; nature sketching, nature photography workshops and a photo contest; two family-fun wildlife fairs; a natural history bike ride, and the 4th annual Run With Deer 5K on Big Pine Key.
The Outdoor Fest is brought to you in part by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.
