Discover why Leopold found sandhill cranes so majestic – learn about their biology and history from renowned bird expert Dr. Stanley Temple, then see them up close in Leopold Country! For weeks before they take flight to migrate south, sandhill cranes gather in mass, by the thousands, on the islands and sandbars of the Wisconsin River. The Aldo Leopold Shack and Farm has become the region’s premier vantage point to experience the incredible sights and sounds of this wildlife spectacle.
