#var:page_name# cover

In 2017, Winnebago County volunteers counted MORE CRANES THAN ANY OTHER COUNTY IN WISCONSIN AND THE NATION! We need your help to defend our title and stay #1 and keep bragging rights when we are out with friends. It's two fun hours and then you go out for breakfast.

If interested, contact Tom Morley at tcmorleybirds@gmail.com to get a map and have a site assigned to you.

The Annual Midwest Crane Count is a citizen science tradition created by the International Crane Foundation (ICF) of Baraboo, WI, to monitor the general population trend of sandhill cranes in the Upper Midwest, as well as to promote awareness of cranes and wetland conservation throughout the count area. We invite you to help gather this valuable data to further ICF research. Volunteer counters of all ages can enjoy this early morning activity. Winnebago Audubon coordinates the count in Winnebago County which has 46 designated sites to be surveyed.
