Sandhill cranes winter at New Mexico’s Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is holding two free viewing events for Utahns to see and learn about sandhill cranes in the wild.

The first will take place on Saturday, Oct. 1 from 7-9 a.m. in fields near the Green River in Jensen, and the second one will occur the same evening from 5-7 p.m. at the roosting grounds at Pelican Lake and Ouray National Wildlife Refuge.

Guests will drive to the viewing sites in their own vehicles and are encouraged to bring binoculars and spotting scopes. The DWR will have a limited number for use.

Duck is a general reporter and weekend announcer at UPR, and is studying broadcast journalism and disability studies at USU. They grew up in northern Colorado before moving to Logan in 2018, so the Rocky Mountain life is all they know. Free time is generally spent with their dog, Monty, listening to podcasts, reading or wishing they could be outside more.
