This year we are offering a couple of free sandhill crane fly-in tours in mid November. Local naturalists will provide a guided tour and answer questions.
At dusk, in large groups that can number from several hundred to several thousand, the cranes converge on the flooded fields to roost for the night. Often this spectacle of flight, vocalization and ground activity is back-dropped by stunning sunsets behind Mt. Diablo. Book this tour early, as it will undoubtedly fill up fast!
The purpose of these tours is to lessen the impact on the cranes by reducing the number of people viewing them at any one time. Also, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife will probably not be able to offer free tours this year because of administrative limitations, so these LSCA tours will help fill that gap.
Attendance will be limited to those who register below (Click on PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS NOW to make a reservation). All adults and youth 16 and older are required to have a Lands Pass, or hunting license, or fishing license. A Lands Pass may be purchased at https://wildlife.ca.gov/licensing/lands-pass.
Tickets available for purchase September 5, 2021
Meet your guides at 3:15 p.m. at Woodbridge Ecological Reserve South at the west end of the parking lot, near the viewing mound.
