The Southeast Tourism Society, which promotes economic development through travel and sustainable tourism in 12 states of the Southeast U.S., included the 14th Annual Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival as one of the Top 20 Events for Winter 2011. This is a very big deal, as birding events don’t usually make the list. Congrats to Neta Harris, the Brevard Nature Alliance, and rest of the principals. Expect this year’s festival to be especially big, and not just because I’m going to be there! You’d be wise to book your tickets ASAP.
