Oct. 12-18 is National Wildlife Refuge Week. To kick off the week-long celebration of nature, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is holding a family wildlife festival starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 11. The event will be filled with tons of wildlife-centric activities like a sea turtle obstacle course, live snake displays and much, much more.
And if you really wanna up your nature game, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is the spot where we went Bioluminescent Kayaking with A Day Away Kayak Tours. You'll get to experience a completely different facet of Florida wildlife. Wildlife nightlife? Whatever you call it, we highly recommend the trip.
Some of the days events will require registration in advance. See the details from the press release below:
