Second Saturdays to focus on cranes

For almost four decades, the International Crane Foundation (ICF) has worked worldwide to conserve cranes and the ecosystems, watersheds, and flyways on which they depend. Discover the 15 crane species of the world through beautiful photography, personal stories, intriguing science, and an engaging discussion with Cully Shelton, Interpretive Programs Manager at ICF. On November 10, 2012 Shelton will entertain and educate us as part of the Historical Research Center’s monthly Second Saturdays speakers’ series. The event will take place at the Sheboygan Falls Public Library, 330 Buffalo Street, Sheboygan Falls, from 9:30am to 11:30am in the lower level meeting room.

Founded in 1973, the ICF today maintains a 225-acre world headquarters near Baraboo, Wisconsin, visited by over 25,000 people annually. ICF’s site hosts a captive flock of approximately 100 cranes, including the only complete collection of all 15 species assembled. The campus offers live crane exhibits, an interactive education center, guided and self-guided tours, a research library, visitor center and over four miles of nature trails set among 100 acres of restored tall grass prairie, oak savanna and wetlands.

This free event is open to the public. No reservations are needed. This series is funded in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Humanities Council with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the State of Wisconsin and by the Corona Sanders family.
