Soaring With The Cranes

July 31, 2018

The Cranes Of The World Festival happens this Saturday at the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo. There will be plenty of fun for the whole family, including guided nature walks, arts and crafts, and special programs throughout the day.

The fun includes special guided tours, free with admission, at 10 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. Entertainer David Stokes will share live animals, songs, stories and fun at 10 and 11 a.m. and at 1 and 2 p.m. Fun activities from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for families include craft tables hosted by the Baraboo Children’s Museum staff. Children also can engage in crane enrichment activities from 12 noon to 1 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to check out this great facility before it closes for a major renovation. It was just announced that the ICF will be closing Oct. 31 for more than a year while a 10 million dollar renovation project is completed.This massive project includes construction of a new visitor center and renovation of most of the crane exhibits. The target date for re-opening is sometime in the spring of 2020.
