Crane Viewing: Enjoy the spectacle of thousands of cranes flying in to Baker Sanctuary, a brief pit stop on their way to warmer wintering grounds. Visitors to the festival are encouraged to bring binoculars, video cameras, spotting scopes and cameras to record the event. We recommend bringing lawn chairs or blankets as available seating is limited.

Art Festival: the work of some of Michigan’s top professional artists will be displayed and on sale.

In addition to the art work, cranes, and the fall colors, the Festival features guided nature walks, nature crafts, a large selection of nature and wildlife books, picnic areas and food concessions, and much more. Live hawks, falcons and owls will also be on display.
