Festival of Cranes


January 12, 2019 6:30 am
Until January 13, 2019 3:00 pm

Celebrate the majesty of the Sandhill and Whooping Crane at Wheeler Wildlife Refuge.

President Theodore Roosevelt (Joe Wiegand) will be joining us both days. Joe Wiegand is considered the world's premiere TR reprisor. As an actor and historian, Joe's portrayals of Theodore Roosevelt in live performances and in television and film have people wondering if TR has come back to life.

Also presenting will be professional photographer David Akoubian of Bear Woods Photography along with other special guests TBA. There will be educational displays, hands on children activities and of course, The Cranes! 

The Auburn University Southeastern Raptor Center's birds of prey presentations will take place at the historic Princess Theater in downtown Decatur. Shuttles will be available.
