Indiana’s Whooping Cranes Saturday, Feb 16 – 1:00 pm


Did you know the tallest birds in North America winter right here in Indiana? In this family-friendly program, Danielle Williams with the International Crane Foundation will discuss how the Whooping Crane made its amazing comeback from around 20-30 individuals in the 1940s to over 800 today. Learn about the creative methods used to bring Whooping Cranes back to the eastern United States, the ongoing challenges associated with this effort, and how some cranes ended up right here in the Hoosier state.

This program included with regular Wesselman Woods admission (free for members).
