At the festival, you can expect a fun day full of educational programs, hands-on activities for children, guided nature walks, live animals, butterfly house, butterfly plants for sale, bus tours to active owl burrows in the area, and much, much, more.
The Burrowing Owl Festival is held annually, on the fourth Saturday in February, in partnership with the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife.
