    I’m a long-time NC member — wondering if you offer any special events/tours etc. during the 2015 sandhill crane migration. We are READY to come….

      Josephine, the TNC person to ask would be Chris Helzer. Google his blog The Prairie Ecologist — it has his email and he can tell you whether we do tours or events.
