Sponsorship registration is being accepted for the event. Sponsorships range from $250 for the monarch level to $2,000 for the top-tiered Florida scrub-jay level.

This year's keynote speakers include James Currie, host of "Nikon's Birding Adventures" on the NBC Sports Network; Melinda Myers, columnist for "Birds & Blooms" magazine and TV-show host of "Melinda's Garden Moment"; and Lake County park ranger and expert birder Gallus Quigley.
