Because of COVID-19, the 9th annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival is moving to a virtual platform this year. The festival will offer a series of fun and educational videos about Greater Sandhill Cranes in Colorado as well as other bird and nature-related topics. The keynote video by Van Graham of Grand Junction relates the history of Greater Sandhill Cranes in Northwest Colorado.  All videos will be made available for free through the Yampa Valley Crane Festival website beginning September 3, 2020 and will remain accessible throughout 2020.
