The Board of Directors, Staff and the 2013 Whooping Crane Festival Planning Committee would like to extend our sincerest thanks and appreciation to the Berlin Rotary Club, the Berlin Conservation Club and all of the very generous area businesses and individuals from all over North America that contributed item(s) for the silent auction and for making the recent festival a huge success!
To all the volunteers that stepped forward to help organize and carry out the Necedah NWR tour, the International Crane Foundation tour and our dinner at the Tuscumbia Golf & Country Club, and those that organized the auctions, or assisted with advertising or parking – THANK YOU!
Volunteers are the backbone of Operation Migration and we could not do what we do without you.
Drum roll please….. The festival generated more than $20,000.00 to help us carry out our work this year!!! We hope you will all give yourselves a huge pat on the back for helping to make this happen. Next time you get a chance to watch the young Whooping crane colts flying behind our aircraft – remember, YOU helped to get them there.
