Wa-HOO! What an exciting Monday! Eager to fly, all 14 young cranes took off behind lead pilot Joe Duff. He soon had seven on each wing before they eventually broke off and flew with some of the chase planes. Chris, Charlie and Richard left for LaSalle County to set up the travel pen at Stopover #6. John, Walter and Heather broke camp and are driving the other vehicles south to Stopover #6. Imagine how happy they must be to make progress at last! We can all celebrate the journey south reaching Illinois today, and 129 miles gone of the 1285-mile total.
North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in
cooperation with the Whooping
Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
