Stay Involved in 2020

As we stand in solidarity with everyone who has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are saddened that we will not be celebrating our Grand Opening on June 27 as planned.

We look forward to a soft opening of our site later this year, when we will welcome you back to stroll our beautiful new exhibits and prairies. View our Facebook album for photos of our headquarters’ renovation.

Beginning in fall 2018, the International Crane Foundation is embarking on a $10 million expansion and renovation. Improvements include a new visitor center and ten updated crane exhibits. We are excited to have this new opportunity and look forward to sharing the benefits of a larger bus drop off area, more shade structures, and new teaching areas and interpretive sites. Learn more about these improvements.

The education team at the International Crane Foundation is working on ways to connect with schools while our headquarters is closed – see below. Thank you for your continued support of the International Crane Foundation. We are very excited to show you our new site in 2020!


Cranes in the Classroom – Fall 2019

Our site construction project won’t slow us down! Thanks to the Antonia Foundation we have an exciting opportunity for K-12 teachers of South Central Wisconsin. We’re bringing conservation lessons to your students, completely free of charge! If you’d like to take advantage of this opportunity, act fast as our capacity is limited.  Learn more and request a reservation for your class.
