With beautiful fall weather and hundreds of Greater Sandhill Cranes staging in the Yampa Valley before migrating south, September is a perfect time for a visit to Northwest Colorado.
The 3rd Annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival will take place Sept. 12 – 15, 2014 in Steamboat Springs and Hayden, Colorado. It will feature four days of free events including daily crane viewings, nature and bird walks, expert speakers, films, a bird art show, workshops, children’s and family activities, and more.
Ted Floyd, editor of Birding magazine and Dr. Richard Beilfuss, President and CEO of the International Crane Foundation will be two of the featured speakers.
The festival headquarters will be located at Bud Werner Memorial Library, 1289 Lincoln Ave., with many of the events spread across Steamboat Springs and Hayden.
