The Wakulla Wildlife Festival has grown into a two-day celebration of Wakulla Spring Basin's natural environment and rich heritage. The annual Wakulla Wildlife Festival is traditionally held the first weekend in April.

In addition to premium guided tours, the Wakulla Wildlife Festival again sponsored Art on the Terrace at Wakulla Springs Lodge. The hard-working folks of a not-so-distant past appeared in a segment entitled Living History Demonstrations.

The $6 per vehicle donation to The Friends of Wakulla Springs supports the shows and programs at Wakulla Springs State Park. Among those was a presentation regarding common butterflies that thrive in the Florida Panhandle, the fancy clogging footwork of the Hot Pepper Steppers, and a cave diver’s view of the largest submerged cave system in the United States.

The Center for Wildlife Education, Georgia Southern University, presented exciting shows about the mysterious vital role snakes and lizards play in our world. Eagles, hawks and owls swooped overhead while their handlers presented predator/prey relations and raptors as indicators of environmental health.

Musicians celebrating the natural environment included Sammy Tedder skillfully blending nature's symphony with his performance on Native American flute or alto sax during the Art on the Terrace and silent auction. On Saturday the bluegrass sounds of Scrub Oaks, Coon Bottom Creek and 'Pickin' & Grinnin' filled the air in the Exhibitor area.
