29th Annual Festival of the Cranes

The City of Socorro, New Mexico and the Bosque del Apache NWR celebrates the return of the cranes with this popular and acclaimed Festival! Over 100 lectures, workshops, tours, hikes and hands-on activities are planned, ranging from the popular Sandhill Crane Behavior to special photography tours to socializing with locals on the Plaza. 2015 promises to be one of the greatest years yet, and we look forward to seeing you there! Members of the Audubon Council of New Mexico, the Central New Mexico Audubon Society, the American Birding Association and the Friends of the Bosque Board will be on hand at the observation decks around the Bosque tour loops to assist visitors with questions and to share their birding expertise and scopes. More than 50 volunteers will be staffing the hospitality tent and the information table at the Macey Center to answer questions and sell event tickets. More than 30 other Bosque volunteers will be driving vans, fixing meals, emptying trash and taking care of all the tasks that make the Festival such an enjoyable event.
