Greater Sandhill Cranes in Colorado’s High Country

Wednesday, January 23 | 6PM | Third Street Center, Carbondale
Thursday, January 24 | 6PM | Hallam Lake, Aspen

The Greater Sandhill Crane is an iconic bird species of the Yampa Valley in Northwest Colorado. Van will present a narrative describing the life history of Colorado’s Greater Sandhill Cranes, which will include discussing the annual cycle of crane migration in the fall and their return to our high country nesting habitats in the spring. His presentation will reveal intimate knowledge of how cranes interact with our mountain environment, other wildlife, and human settlement in the West.

Van K. Graham is a retired wildlife biologist who worked for Colorado Parks and Wildlife for 32 years. Throughout his career, Van assisted with annual work plans, inventories, field studies, and development of a Greater Sandhill Crane recovery plan and still maintains a deep interest in traveling to various locations to observe, photograph, and enjoy these birds across North America.
