Volunteers from this community are the life of every activity offered during the Festival. These dedicated people bring a diverse energy to the tasks that help to make the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival a success. In all of the evaluations we receive regarding he effectiveness of the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, the attitude, helpfulness and caring of the people on the front line of contact have always been given the highest marks of satisfaction.

The 2017 Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival (scheduled for January 25 - 30, 2017) will rely on all volunteer levels to bring competence and dedication for the ultimate success of our efforts to provide an event that will encourage participants to return to Florida's Space Coast.

  • Registration : assists festival attendees who have pre-registered and are picking up ID, assists festival attendees who are registering for activities and gives each registered festival attendee a Welcome Bag.

The Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival holds an informal dinner for Volunteers as the kick-off of the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife  season. This is an opportunity to greet returning Volunteers and meet new ones who are joining us for the first time. Following the Space Coast Birding and Wildlife Festival, we gather Volunteers and any other interested persons for a post-Festival meeting to review the good, the bad and the unusual in helping the next event to be a better one.
