Location: Hutchins Street Square, Crete Hall
Join us in welcoming back Dr. Gary Ivey, who will describe how Greater Sandhill Cranes behave during their nesting and brood rearing season and share their family lives, from hatch to flights to wintering areas. He will also talk about their distribution during the breeding season and a bit of history of the population and its recovery from near extinction. The Greater Sandhill Crane nests in California, Oregon, and Washington and is listed as a threatened species in California.
Gary Ivey works with the International Crane Foundation as a Research Associate and is an expert on Sandhill Cranes in the Pacific Flyway. He has worked with wildlife for over 40 years, concentrating his work on waterbirds, waterfowl, and wetland conservation. He studied nesting ecology of Sandhill Cranes for his Master’s Thesis and wintering ecology of Sandhill Cranes for his PhD, both from Oregon State University.
