The 2015 Festival is located at: Eastern Florida State College - Titusville Campus ( NEW name for Brevard Community College ) 1311 North US1 Titusville, Florida 32796
The featured bird of the 2015 festival is the Red-cockcaded Woodpecker – an endangered species that makes its home in mature pine forests. The Red-cockcaded Woodpecker is best seen in Brevard County at the St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park and nearby Orange County at Hal Scott Regional Preserve & Park. Classroom presentations and field trips will introduce you to these interesting birds that have an ecological niche in the life of our pine forests.
