Island Earthdays Celebrate Our Planet

There may be no better place to celebrate our awe-inspiring earth than by the sea at Honeymoon Island State Park.

If you’re staying at Beso Del Sol Resort April 18 and 19, you can experience a celebration of nature during Island Earthdays.

Located in the shady picnic area next to the beach and wooded hiking trails, the festivities are focused around family fun and getting everyone in the spirit of preserving our natural resources.

The two-day event features live music, lots of activities and crafts for kids, live animal presentations, nature education and history displays, great food and beverages, fine artists, local environmentally friendly vendors and more.

Here are some event highlights.

Osprey Village
Osprey Village includes displays from state and local non-profit environmental agencies, conservation agencies, sustainability groups, and environmental demonstrations. One of the most popular areas in Osprey Village is the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve with their Birds of Prey. Volunteers will bring some of the raptors under their care, hopefully including Abiaka, the bald eagle who fell from his nest on Honeymoon Island, and was rescued and rehabilitated after his injuries.

Live Music
From island music with steel drums to rock, bluegrass and much more, there is never a dull moment with all the live acts playing at this event.

Beer, Wine and Food
Delicious drinks for the grownups and the kids alike are available, and all sale proceeds benefit Friends of the Island Parks who help sustain and keep Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island State Park.  

Get out and enjoy the scenery and learn how you can help conserve at the same time.
