Adventure Pass to International Crane Foundation @ International Crane Foundation
Jul 30 – Oct 31 all-day

We are delighted to be partnering with the Baraboo Public Library this summer to create an Adventure Pass program, to offer surrounding communities an opportunity to learn more about the services provided by the library and visit the world’s 15 species of cranes for FREE.

The Adventure Pass program allows patrons of the South Central Library System to check out a pass through the Baraboo Public Library and receive free admission to our headquarters. The Adventure Pass program is available from July 30 through Oct. 31, 2018. Ten passes are available, and library patrons may check out an Adventure Pass for one week. The pass allows admission for 2 adults and up to 4 children, ages 6 through 17.

Learn more about the Adventure Pass program.

The Adventure Pass program is supported in part by a grant from the Sauk County UW-Extension, Arts and Culture Committee and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
