Now that the 23rd Annual Wilderness Wildlife Week held each year in Pigeon Forge has been wrapped up—and congratulations to the organizers of this 8-day event for a job well done—let's go Crane Spotting!
Weather permitting, Saturday, February 2 @ Noon, I'll lead an Ijams Road Trip to Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge to see sandhill cranes overwintering at the Meigs County location. Golden and bald eagles, wintering ducks and whooping cranes also a possibility. $5 for Ijams members, $10 for non-members. Ijams will provide hot cocoa. Please call (865) 577-4717, ext. 110 to register. Meet at Ijams Visitor Center.
