Virtual 9th Yampa Valley Crane Festival

The 9th annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival will be a virtual event taking place September 3 – September 6, 2020, from Steamboat Springs and Hayden, Colorado, featuring the Rocky Mountain Greater Sandhill Cranes that breed and stage in the Yampa Valley.

We will move many of our festival events to a virtual platform and also offer a series of educational videos about our Greater Sandhill Cranes through our website. Check back often to see the latest information about these virtual festival events.

The speakers who were scheduled for the 2020 festival – Dr. Richard Beilfuss, President and CEO of the International Crane Foundation, Steve Burrows, award-winning Canadian mystery writer, journalist, and past recipient of a “Nature Writer of the Year” award from BBC Wildlife, and Arvind Panjabi, avian conservation scientist for Bird Conservancy of the Rockies – will present at our 2021 festival scheduled for September 2-5, 2021.
