Each year thousands of visitors make their way to Lodi area wildlife refuges and farmlands to experience first hand one of nature’s spectacles. The abundance of crane habitat continues to nourish our agricultural roots, with water, soil, and climate that sustains the birds, enriches our lives, and benefits our local economy.

For 24 years, Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Association has celebrated the return of the cranes. In partnership with the City of Lodi, we continue this tradition, welcoming an ever-growing circle of friends to our community to share the wonder of the Sandhill Crane … and so much more.
