Event Series Event Series: Wings Over Water Festival

Wings Over Water Festival

October 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


The Wings Over Water (WOW) Festival is the Annual National Wildlife Refuge Fundraising event. It offers over 70 birding, paddling, photography, art, and natural history programs. The festival takes place at 6 national wildlife refuges in northeast North Carolina. It is one of the premier east coast wildlife festivals. Locally, many activities take place on National Park Service properties, specifically Cape Hatteras National Seashore, a Festival partner. Knowledgeable activity leaders along with a small participant-to-leader ratio make this a unique experience where participants will not get lost in the crowd. Every festival leader is an expert in their field, volunteering their time, travel and expertise. Wings Over Water leaders come from a range of professions and fields including professors, experienced birders, well-respected botanists, biologist, authors, award-winning photographers, and artists.

Registration is required at a cost of $5.00. Additional fees accrue based on which festival activities participants choose to attend. Activity costs range from $20 -$40.
