Gather around Citizen Scientists:
The annual Midwest Crane Count is next Saturday, April 16.
Join more than 3,000 other volunteers as we record crane counts in six Midwest states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa and Indiana.
To volunteer, just contact your county coordinator.
And, this morning on WPR at 11am (during Larry Meiler's show time) staff from the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wis., will talk about the upcoming count and how crane populations are doing here in the U.S. and around the world. Should be a fascinating program!
(for those not familiar w/WPR's online stream, follow the link and then choose the "Ideas Network" streams.)
Many thanks to WRC for the use of the juvenile Sandhill Crane photo.
