THE SANDHILL CRANE EXPERIENCE!
Sandhill Cranes are one of the most primitive birds alive today. With a wingspan of 5-7 feet, this bird cuts a striking image while soaring high above during its annual fall migration. The program begins at Plum Creek Nature Center where we board a chartered bus to Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area near Medaryville, Indiana. Historically large numbers of Sandhill Cranes gather here to feed and rest during their fall migration. Bring binoculars and a camera for this unforgettable experience. The viewing area is outdoors and is accessible. Fees include travel, snacks and experienced guides.
