Virtual Wild About Nature Festival

November 8 - 16, 2020

The 2020 Wild About Nature experience is presented by sponsors Mike and Christine Knupp, and includes a Field Guide to Fun activity book and Facebook event.

Virtual Event
Please join us on Facebook for a virtual event filled with all the nature-based family fun and excitement you’ve come to expect from this annual festival, plus a few new components including daily nature challenges and exclusive video content!

Activity Book
We created a Wild About Nature Field Guide to Fun activity book for families to enjoy together. This resource includes craft projects, scavenger hunts, trail guides, and other unique activities meant to foster a love and appreciation of the great outdoors from the many organizations typically present at the Wild About Nature Festival.

Sign-up at the bottom of this page to reserve your copy of the Wild About Nature Field Guide to Fun!

Pick-Up Day
We are hosting a drive-thru pick-up day at Bay Preserve on Saturday, November 7th from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Come any time during the pick-up window to receive your copy of the guide. We will distribute one copy per family and the first 400 children to come through on pick-up day will also receive an extra-special Wild About Nature planting set!

If you’ve attended the Wild About Nature Festival in the past, you know how much fun decorating a pot and planting a Florida native plant is! With the help of our friends at Florida Native Plants Nursery, Lowe’s, and Sunshine Community Compost, we are pleased to share the activity with you again this year, to complete in the comfort of your own home.

A digital version of the guide will be available after the pick-up day.
