Join us for Crane Congregations!

Each fall, thousands of sandhill cranes use the sandbars and islands in the Wisconsin River for staging prior to migration. The river just behind the Aldo Leopold Shack and Farm property provides the premier vantage point for crane viewing available in the region. We still have openings on two of our November tours.

Join us for this breathtaking wildlife experience!  Programs will be led by world-renowned bird expert Dr. Stan Temple, Senior Fellow at the Aldo Leopold Foundation and Beers-Bascom Professor Emeritus in Conservation in the Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology at University of Wisconsin-Madison. 

To show our appreciation to current members of the Aldo Leopold Foundation, we are discounting the program fee--$25 for members or $50 for non-members.

Upcoming Dates: Friday, Nov. 7, and Saturday, Nov. 8, beginning at 3:30pm (due to the time of sunset).  These November dates usually have a higher chance of seeing large numbers of cranes! Call our office at 608-355-0279 to register.
