Birding Trips

There are a wide range of birding adventures this season. Some are a few hours, while others are day trips, and on occasion there are overnight trips to destinations much further outside Manatee County. 

You can see the complete list of birding adventures in our annual events brochure or on our digital calendar. 

Remember, some trips have costs such as road / bridge tolls, park entrance fees, tram ride fees, overnight lodging, meals, etc.. IF you are carpooling, please be considerate & offer your driver funds to assist with cost of gas, mileage, tolls, etc..
