Booo (Hooo). No Go.
the same story as yesterday, with strong south winds and warm temps. Such
weather is lovely for your own outdoor activity but in Heather's words,
"awful weather for guiding young Whooping cranes south." Check
This! Journaling Question and Invitation
of Ultralights & Cranes
the final distance for this year's migration is an average of the
final distance for 2001 and 2002, how far will the cranes travel in
the final distances for the 2001 and 2002 migrations from Heather's
chart.) Now think of your own math problem, using these numbers.
- When the
weather allows the migration to move again, the folks of Operation
Migration invite everyone to come out to the Muscatatuck National
Wildlife Refuge near Seymour, Indiana to see an early morning departure.
Pull out a map of Indiana. Do you live close enough to view this historic
reintroduction effort in action? From Hwy 50 east of Seymour, use
the refuge main entrance and go about 4.5 miles to Sandhill Pond parking
lot. It is on the west side of the road and will likely offer a good
vantage point on departure morning. The migration is now two stops away
from this location, so stay tuned.
Journey North is pleased to feature this educational
adventure made possible by the
