Each winter more than 20,000 sandhill cranes gather in the Sulphur Springs Valley of southeastern Arizona. We will watch as thousands of these majestic birds fly in to their mid-day resting area—truly one of nature’s greatest wildlife spectacles. We will also look for wintering raptors, other waterfowl and various land birds. Wine tasting at a local vineyard is also included in the program as well as a private tour of the Amerind Museum in Dragoon, dedicated to Native American cultures and histories. This weekend trip will be led by prominent author and naturalist Lynn Hassler and Carlos Oldham, Garden docent and former president of the Audubon Society of Portland, Oregon.
