Join us in welcoming Paul Tebbel as Sunday’s keynote speaker. What makes cranes so special? This program combines video footage and photos with research results and personal anecdotes to introduce you to Sandhill Cranes and to help you understand how their physical and behavioral characteristics and their life history makes them special. Paul has spent over 45 years watching, researching and learning about cranes. This program is suitable for all age audiences, especially those just learning about cranes.
Paul Tebbel grew up in southern Michigan and has a BS in Biology from Northern Michigan University, with undergraduate study on Sandhill Cranes in the Hiawatha National Forest, MI. He continued to study cranes for his MS in Zoology from the University of Western Ontario, where his research was on the status of Sandhill Cranes in central Ontario. Paul managed National Audubon’s 1,400 acre Rowe Sanctuary on the Platte River in Nebraska for Sandhill Cranes and other water birds from 1995 to 2006. He then served as the Executive Director of three conservation and nature education nonprofits in New Mexico and California from 2006 until retiring in 2018.
Paul has given presentations and conducted workshops on Sandhill Cranes throughout the western United States (AK, CO, CA, NE, NM), since 1995, including 23 years of presenting at the Festival of the Cranes at Bosque del Apache NWR in San Antonio, New Mexico and over 10 years of presentations and field trips at Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Festival.
