NEW Events Added!

We have recently added a couple of exciting things to the Whooping Crane Festival roster and we want to make sure you’re aware of them.

Firstly, on Thursday evening, Sept. 7th, you’ll have an opportunity to join everyone at a create/paint your own sign event! 

This will take place at the VFW lodge in Princeton and the bar will be open so come on out and have a beverage, socialize with old friends and make new ones, while supporting a great cause! 

The instructor will have all the prep work done and will offer a number of unique designs so you’ll be proud to take your masterpiece home with you as a memento.

Next, we’ve added a speaker to the line-up but this one will take place on Sunday, Sept. 10th at the Caestecker Library in beautiful Green Lake, Wisconsin.

Associate Professor Misty McPhee is our featured guest speaker at 11am. Misty has been the lead researcher at Necedah National Wildlife Refuge for the past 2 years and will share her initial findings in determining the post-hatch/pre-fledge whooping crane chick mortality issue. 

Check out the entire festival line-up and be sure to register for those events you want to attend over the weekend!

    Do you think that Professor McPhee’s comments could be recorded so those of us that live elsewhere could be informed as to her thoughts about the high mortality rate of the released chicks? Maybe she might have some good ideas that could be implemented to help improve the survival rate of the chicks. It seems that everyone on this site were very distressed about last year’s disastrous low survivor rate of released chicks. So much time, effort, and money went into getting the chicks ready for release, only to have them killed before they even had a chance to migrate. Thanks.
