Join us for this specially arranged exploration of southeastern Arizona. Each winter thousands of sandhill cranes gather in the Sulphur Springs Valley to feed on corn stubble and other waste grains. These stately birds are a sight to behold, particularly when seen in flocks of several thousand. Their wild guttural bugle is a sound you will never forget. The area is also good for spotting wintering raptors, waterfowl and various land birds. In addition to birding, we will go to a local wine tasting in the Willcox area and attend a private tour of the Amerind Foundation Museum in Dragoon, dedicated to the interpretation of Native American cultures and their histories. The weekend program will be led by author and naturalist Lynn Hassler and landscape architect and naturalist Jack Gilcrest.
