Sauk City & Prairie du Sac, WI recently held their annual ‘Bald Eagle Watching Days, an event that included speakers, outdoor activities as well as displays.
Thanks to volunteer Craniacs Bob and Mary Vethe and Doug and Mako Pellerin, Operation Migration was able to have a display and be well represented.
From all reports, the volunteer quartet had a great day, and enjoyed talking to people about OM and spreading the word about the reintroduction project.
Doug told us he was astonished at the number of attendees, and estimated that between the four of them, they had talked with close to 600 people. He said, “It was fantastic how many people were so interested in OM’s work with Whooping cranes. Hopefully we attracted many ‘new’ people to the project and converted some to Craniacs.”
Retired school teacher turned Craniac Mary Vethe captivated her audience – demonstrating why she was so good at her job.

Super job, volunteers! We don’t know what we would we do with out you – and we never want to find out!
