  • What a wonderful, relaxing, educational experience. The staff here are wonderful and this is the only place in the world that you can see all 15 species of cranes. Admission is reasonable and they offer a few electric carts to help you get around. I suggest getting a membership as this helps the foundation on its mission
  • Such a unique and fun learning experience for children and adults! If you're in the area definitely put this on your must do list! They even have a fun little scavenger hunt for kids to complete to get a paper crane. Really neat animal tracks matching game in the gift shop as well!
