41st Monte Vista Crane Festival

By | | No Comments

Join Us For The Migration Experience Of A Lifetime. The 41st Festival Will Be March 8-10, 2024

Sandhill Cranes and other migratory birds follow a long route during their seasonal migrations. Along the way, there are many places where you can stop and view these beautiful creatures. So what makes the Monte Vista Crane Festival Unique? We believe it is a combination of unmatched scenery, exceptional wildlife viewing, and the friendly, welcoming communities of the San Luis Valley.

At the Monte Vista Crane Festival you can enjoy thousands of Sandhill Cranes, ducks, and geese flying against a backdrop of mountain scenery. Raptors will adorn the power poles and owls will be sitting with their young. A visit to the Monte Vista Crane Festival is an opportunity to see an amazing natural spectacle as well as experience a unique rural community.

Bird Conservancy’s Wildlife Habitat Biologist Anna Greenberg will be a presenter at the festival.

We invite your family to join us for a morning of citizen science, observing the birds around Barr Lake and discussing the impact we can have on understanding bird populations.
