Please be aware that ALL of our current programming is subject to change.
Crane Season Tour Dates: March 6 - April 11
Registration for all crane-viewing tours will be delayed until at least February 1, 2021.
We are evaluating local health conditions on an ongoing basis to determine the which events and crane viewing opportunities cantake place. The safety of our staff, volunteers, and guests are the utmost priority. Please use the following guidelines to assist in your decision making.
We will only be operating our General Crane Viewing Experiences and our Overnight Photo Experiences this year (tripods will be allowed on the General Crane Viewing Experience).
In 2021, we will NOT be providing our photography experiences, indoor viewing, crane behavior basics, speaker series, school field trips and family viewing nights.
We are working with our local health department, on best practices for operating tours and the visitor center. All tours are subject to cancellation on short notice. Fees will be fully refunded any time it is necessary to close for safety (this could mean less than a 24 hour notice of cancellation).
The Sanctuary trails and visitor center will be open for reduced hours, 10 am to 2 pm daily beginning Feb 15 - April 15.
All information is subject to change. Keep an eye on this page, your email and our social media accounts for future updates.
