  • Such a wonderful place. They have cranes from all over the world. They're kept in a more natural habitat. Like the sandhill cranes, through places like the International Crane Foundation, they'vebeen brought back from being an endangered species.
  • I was so excited- a local artist just happened to mention this place to me while I was viewing her gallery, and when I arrived I was anything but disappointed. It was an amazing and educational experience, and I was so thrilled to get to see so many beautiful birds- every type of crane there is! Looking forward to revisiting in 2020 when all the exhibit reconstruction is done :)
