Marsh MADNESS Sandhill Crane Festival

Friends of Goose Pond supports wildlife conservation and habitat restoration at Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area in Greene County, Indiana and this year their Marsh Madness Sandhill Crane Festival will be held on March 6th and 7th.

With nearly 5,000 acres of shallow water wetlands, 1,300 acres of prairie and over 30 miles of levees, Goose Pond FWA provides excellent wildlife watching opportunities and more than 260 bird species have been documented – including Whooping cranes!

Check out the festival schedule and if you can make it be sure to take in the Friday evening dinner with keynote speaker Joe Duff. If you can’t make it Friday, Joe will be giving a one hour presentation on Saturday as well!

    And another one slips away. Wish I could win the lottery, so I could attend all these wonderful-sounding Crane Festivals. Thanks for posting them anyway, Heather. Good luck with all the preparations.
