Cranes Festival In Baraboo Aug. 10

If you enjoy cranes, come to Baraboo, Wis., Aug. 10, 2013, for the Cranes of the World Festival at the International Crane Foundation. It’s 15 minutes north of the Inn at Wananissee Point. The annual one-day event offers various activities to celebrate the world’s 15 crane species, which reside year-round at the Foundation.

From 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at your leisure explore the new Conservation Leadership exhibit and hike the Foundation’s nature trails through 160 acres of restored prairie, savanna, wetland and woodland communities. Also browse Bloom! The Story Of Ecosystem Restoration, an exhibit by professional photographer Tom Lynn. Unveiled in 2012, the photographs depict a year of blooming native plants from the property’s panoramas.

  • guided bird and nature walk
