The 7th Annual Georgia's Colonial Coast Birding and Nature Festival will take place Oct. 8-12 at Jekyll Island and along the Georgia coast.

Activities span the entire Georgia Coast and will appeal to a wide spectrum of the public from the casual nature enthusiast to the serious birdwatcher. An exhibit hall, "The Rookery," featuring conservation-based organizations and vendors, will be in the Jekyll Island Convention Center.

There will be seminars, interactive programs, field trips and boat trips out to the barrier islands, the outstanding natural habitats that span the entire Georgia coast. They will be guided by expert naturalists and biologists.

The Jekyll Island Convention Center will have "The Rookery," an exhibit hall with conservation based organizations and vendors, live raptor show, activities for children and much more.

Saturday night the keynote speaker is Donald Kroodsma, author of “The Singing Life of Birds.”

Early registration begins Aug. 29 online and the most popular field trips to the barrier islands likely will fill up quickly.
