Please sign up to attend ECOS’ Sandhill Crane Tour, volunteer field trip, on Friday, January 21.
We’ll meet Mike Savino, our tour lead from Save our Sandhill Cranes, and check in with him at:
Woodbridge Ecological Reserve (AKA Isenberg Crane Reserve), 11154 W. Woodbridge Rd, Lodi
Please print a parking permit for your car, by clicking here. If you cannot print one, that’s OK, you will be covered by another person having one.
Mike will talk about crane biology, behavior, and conservation status. We will then drive to a viewing site for sandhill cranes. Bring your binoculars, dress with layers for the evening, and wear an N95 mask for Covid (we’ll have N95 masks for whoever needs one). ECOS members Tina Suarez-Murias and Rob Burness plan to be with us to add to the discussion.
4:10 pm arrival at site
4:25 pm tour start
~5:50 pm wrap-up and depart
