Birding in Baraboo, WI at International Crane Foundation

Birding in Baraboo, WI at International Crane Foundation

Dedicated to the protection and preservation of cranes and their wetland homes, the Foundation has the most complete collection of the fifteen crane species in the world.

Newly-hatched chicks, nature trails, and video presentation. Open daily May 1-Oct 31 from 9am-5pm for self-guided and guided tours. Cranes are one of the oldest living families of birds and also the most endangered. The foundation not only studies the birds, but also is the only institution in the world to breed all fifteen species. Since 1990, Whooping Crane chicks have been raised here for release into the wild in an effort to restore other populations.

While visiting ICF, you will learn about the techniques used to preserve some of the rarest birds in the world. During your visit, you may see the Wattled Cranes gracefully dancing in their grassland enclosure, or hear the haunting calls of the Red-crowned Cranes. You will also see the Sarus crane, the tallest flying bird in the world. At the Amoco Whooping Crane Exhibit, you can observe one of the world's rarest birds, the Whooping crane, in a wetland exhibit. We invite you to learn more about the wonder of cranes, threats to their survival, and ICF's efforts to protect them.
