Celebrate the fall migration as thousands of Sandhill Cranes begin their journey south for the winter. The Festival is held the 3rd weekend of August, and features internationally renowned speakers, artists and guides. Activities and workshops are offered for all ages, which include guided walks, birdwatching, photography, falconry and crane calling.
This year's featured speaker is Laura McDuffie, wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Management Program. Watch her full presentation “A year in the life of a Lesser Yellowlegs” with cutting-edge research, extraordinary videography, and stories from the field.
