All Hands on Deck!

All the cranes are tucked safely into their travel enclosure in Dane Co., WI.

    Oh, looks like on the flyover list there is a new viewing site in Dane Co. Correct?

    Welcome to Dane County! We hope to get a few people out to the flyover location when you leave stop #3. We trust your departure will be MUCH sooner this year 🙂 Is the flyover location for take off the same as last year?

    Is the migration route map a little dated? I don’t find a Dane County stop.

      I found the stop, as new, in the viewing stop list.

      It’s a couple miles from the Columbia Co. Stop. I’ve just not had time to update the map.

    This is very reassuring! Hopefully they can get another good jaunt in soon.

    I am guessing that Dane County is replacing Columbia County. But will the next stop-over (#4) still be in Green County?
    Your migration map still has Columbia County… just want to check so my 3rd graders have the correct information/data to record in their Whooping Crane Folders!
    Thanks for your help!

      Yes Green Co is next. Dane is only 2 miles south of the Columbia co. Stop. Barely over the county line
