Burrowing Owl Festival, Wildlife & Environmental Expo

February 22, 2025 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Cape Coral is home to the largest known population of the Florida BURROWING OWL which is now a threatened species. These pint-sized birds burrow underground where they nest from early February through mid-July and are now the official city bird of Cape Coral. Please join us at this family fun-filled event which celebrates the start of the burrowing owl nesting season and all of Cape Coral’s natural wildlife treasures.

Festival highlights will include 32 environmental and wildlife organizations with educational exhibits and live animals, Burrowing Owl informative exhibits, presentations by environmental and wildlife speakers, live Florida animal presentations, free tours of our butterfly house, and owl and photography bus tours in Cape Coral. Children will enjoy the free arts and crafts. There will be 23 artists, photographers, and craft vendors of all things natural, native, and wild with many items for sale. You will also enjoy on site music, food, and business vendors.

Established in 2017, the Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife has been protecting Burrowing Owls, Gopher Tortoises, Bald Eagles, and other wildlife in Cape Coral. The Burrowing Owl and Wildlife Exposition is fundraising event for visitors and residents to learn about Burrowing Owls and other threatened wildlife species.
