    On our way to a week long camping vacation in northern woods, we frequently veer off course to partake in regional stops. However, of the four of us, only my wife wanted to make this stop. We're glad ...  more »

    This is a walking tour but is so worth the time. Beautiful big birds in gorgeous prairie grasses and wild flowers. Lots of information about these very important animals. Bring the kids and gaze upon ...  more »

    The tour was interesting and the different cranes were wonderful to watch. However, some of the pens are long and narrow, and the cranes sometimes stay at the back preventing a good view. Also, some of the cranes stay in their enclosure and cannot be viewed. The Whooping Crane exhibit had one crane visible but the angle for the viewing area was awkward. The foundation does good work but my sense was they tolerate visitors rather than encourage them. Nice gift shop.

    Totally disappointed. We were told we had to watch a 15 minute video and then go on a GUIDED tour that lasted 1 1/2 - 2 hours. The website says "You may also explore the site on your own". There were not many cranes, maybe 1-2 in every other cage. Not meant for kids, especially when it's 90° out and the tour moves at a snails pace.

    We were able to explore the entire area with or without a guided tour. We took an unguided tour and saw many beautiful birds from all over the world. Did you know baby cranes look like baby ducks?

    Facinating place. When we were there the cranes seemed as curious about us as we were them so they came right up to the fence allowing for great pics and close ups. Its worth the time.
