If you are looking to increase your knowledge about Sandhill Cranes in a small group setting with the opportunity to ask questions, this tour is for you. The Cosumnes River Preserve is one of the few places in the Delta where large groups of cranes fly in to roost each evening and is the tour’s destination. Take this opportunity to visit an area that is closed to the public. The tour will be lead by Dr. Gary Ivey, a research associate with the International Crane Foundation. He is the foremost expert on Lodi cranes and has vast knowledge of their migratory and reproductive cycle. Dr. Ivey earned his PhD studying winter ecology of the Sandhill Cranes in the Delta. Bring your binoculars and spotting scopes to fully appreciate this extraordinary event. If the tour runs late getting back for the dinner, we will hold you a plate.
