We’ve seen the lark bunting in summer and the prairie chicken in winter, so join us to see the sandhill crane in early spring. The cranes will be making their annual northward trek, spending time at the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge in the San Luis Valley in March. The 20,000-strong flock arrives to refuel on grain and begin their courtship rituals. Along with birding, enjoy local food, history, workshops and lectures. It’s a unique Colorado event not to be missed even if you’re prone to shivering on a cold morning! Warm up with us on this action-packed tour.

Includes bus transportation, two nights’ lodging in Alamosa, all event costs and gratuities, guides and three meals, including a welcome dinner.
