Lodi, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2016
The wetland habitat in the Central Valley provides a winter haven for these birds like no other. The sights and sounds of these birds will leave visitors in awe.
The cranes migrate from Canada, Alaska, and Siberia, and settle in the surrounding Lodi area for a well-deserved winter rest. The festival celebrates the return of the Greater and Lesser Sandhill Crane as well as over 100 different kinds of birds and wildlife in the region.
For 20 years, Lodi’s Sandhill Crane Festival has celebrated the return of the cranes. In partnership with the City of Lodi, the Festival continues this November, welcoming an ever-growing circle of friends to our community to share the wonder of the Sandhill Crane.
Every year excited visitors can expect to enjoy a variety of workshops, exhibits, nationally recognized guest speakers, well-known local and regional artists, musicians and other performers, guided tours and unique birding items for sale. The workshops consist of family and children’s programs as well as hands-on exhibits, origami and activities for the kids.
“We are just ecstatic to celebrate the 20th Annual Sandhill Crane Festival here in Lodi”, says Nancy Beckman President and CEO of Visit Lodi! Conference and Visitors Bureau. “The festival provides visitors an incredible opportunity through tours and classes to view and learn about these amazing birds. One doesn’t need to be an avid birdwatcher to fall in love with this event.”
