Tennessee Sandhill Crane Festival 19-20 Jan. 2013

Tennessee River Valley Geo-Tourism gives the details:

Event Dates: January 19, 2013 – January 20, 2013

Description of Event

The Tennessee Sandhill Crane Festival is a celebration of the thousands of Sandhill Cranes that migrate through or spend the winter at the confluence of the Hiwassee and Tennessee Rivers from November to February each year. While public viewing of the cranes is always available at the TN Wildlife Resources Agency Hiwassee Refuge, the festival offers activities for the entire family. There will be speakers, films, and children’s activities centered on the cranes, Tennessee’s other wildlife, and the rich Native American history of the area.  

Festival activities will be held at the Birchwood Elementary School, the Hiwassee Refuge, the Cherokee Removal Memorial Park, and the Rhea County Welcome Center. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is the primary sponsor of this event.

Information on festival events and directions can be found at www.tncranefestival.org.

  1. The festival is always wonderful, especially involving the students of Birchwood. I did not get attend this year, but visited Feb. 17th and looking forward to 2014. The viewing area and fields show the hard work involved to entice the sandhills. One question, is there a way I can receive one of the festival posters? I thought they were very nice. Thank you, Hilda
