It's the Clouds (+0
Across much of the nation, wintry weather rages. It's time for the cranes to complete their migration. Journy North is putting out the word on behalf of Operation Migration: the team needs good weather as much as funds to pay for crane chow, gas for the planes, and other essentials. As newspaper writer Val Cunningham put it, "Give the gift of flight to 17 young whooping cranes followng an ulralight aircraft on their first migratory journey. Mile Maker sponsorship helps Operation Migration lead the endangered young cranes to their winter refuge." Now a generous donor will double your money by matching it for anyone who donates the sum of 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, or one mile! Details >>
Liz of Operation Migration reminds everyone that once they reach the next stopover location (Meigs County, TN) the public can view their departure from the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge. Directions >>
