OSPREY, FL (March 10, 2022) Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast announces the return of their Wild About Nature Festival on Saturday, April 2. This celebrated community event will take place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm at the organization’s Bay Preserve headquarters located at 400 Palmetto Avenue, Osprey, 34229.
“After a virtual event in 2020 and the postponement of the 2021 event last Fall, we are delighted to bring the Wild About Nature Festival back to Bay Preserve,” says Christine Johnson, president of Conservation Foundation. “Getting kids outside to foster a love of nature is central to our work and this event brings our community together to do just that.”
With an exhibitor line-up featuring many local environmental and youth-serving organizations, this year’s festival marks 13 years of connecting kids to the beauty and wonder of the natural world through a fun-filled day of nature-based activities and exploration. Activities include tree climbing, nature printing, native plant planting, animal encounters, dip-netting, face-painting, crafts, and more. Multiple food trucks will also be onsite including Big Blue Grilled Cheese Company, Currywurst, and Kona Ice.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. More details can be found on Conservation Foundation’s Facebook page or at conservationfoundation.com/events.
