Every year thousands of Sandhill Cranes use Big Marsh Lake, which is part of Michigan Audubon’s Baker Sanctuary, as a migration staging area. Together we will watch a gathering the most celebrated gathering of Sandhill Cranes in Michigan at CrameFest 2008. The festival site is located on property owned and operated by the Kiwanis Club, the international service organization founded in Michigan and focused on kids.
Visitors who stay until dusk on Saturday October 11 or Sunday October 12 can expect to 2,000 cranes or more as they converge on Big Marsh Lake.
The pre-dusk arrival of cranes is the festival center piece, but the county fair flavor of CraneFest has something for every family member.
