The Private Lives of Sandhill Cranes

Saturday, November 4, 2023

2:30-3:20 PM

Crete Hall, Hutchins Street Square, Lodi, CA

Sandhill Cranes communicate with each other in many ways, including dancing, body language, and vocalizations.  You will learn about crane behavior, including how to distinguish between dancing and aggression, and many other details that will help you better understand and appreciate cranes in the wild.  The presenter, Paul Tebbel, has worked with cranes since 1976, including 11 years as the director of Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary on the Platte River in Nebraska.


Seating will be first come first serve.

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.
