Join Paul Tebbel, long time crane biologist and Executive Director of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, as he shares his passion for cranes. Sandhill Cranes are one of the largest birds you can see in CA and many spend the winter just south of us in the North Delta Area. Finding them is fun but learning about these amazing birds is even better. During Paul's program, you'll learn about their basic biology, migration and conservation status across the US through the use of video and stories gained from 40 years of working with cranes. Paul will also provide maps and directions to the best places (and times) to see cranes in CA and how to plan your personal 'Crane Watching Trips' in California and in Nebraska. If you have the Platte River on your bucket list, don't miss this program!
Presenter Paul Tebbel started his biology career doing research on Sandhill Cranes in northern Michigan and central Canada nearly 40 years ago. After a decade as the first Environmental Affairs Director for Patagonia in Ventura, he then spent 11 years running Audubon's Rowe Sanctuary on the Platte River in south-central Nebraska where he helped orchestrate one of the best eco-tourism experiences in North America. Paul returned to California in 2008 and has run Effie Yeaw since 2011.
