Every year, sandhill cranes migrate to the areas along the Rio Grande, filling the air with their loose Vs and circles as they look for prime landing fields. Standing four to five feet high with a wingspread of seven feet, these stately red-capped birds are the delight of nature lovers. Join us for this 2.5-mile walk on level terrain to view the cranes, before they head north as warmer weather approaches. No restrooms available. Limited enrollment.
