Nature Nuts:  Sandhill Crane Spectacle

Sunday, January 19, 2020
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM


The Sandhill Cranes have arrived! Thousands of birds fill the skies over Birchwood as they migrate in and out of the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge. It’s quite a sight to see these four foot tall birds and their six foot wingspans in flight. The Refuge provides a combination of food and roosting habitat and is the winter home of bald eagles, golden eagles, white pelicans, and a variety of other wildlife species like the federally endangered Whooping Crane. According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, more than 20,000 cranes can be seen in this area.  Please note the later-than-usual time! We will meet at Cherokee Removal Park in Birchwood.


**Registration Update: Please register all adults + children attending

What is the Nature Nuts Club? Join Aquarium educators and guest experts for a monthly nature club, especially for children ages 5-12! The Tennessee Aquarium's Nature Nuts come together to connect children and their families to the amazing diversity of nature in our own backyards and around the world.  Our goal is to kindle a lifelong appreciation for the natural world. Topics vary month to month. Children ages 5-12 are encouraged to sign-up. Some meetings are at the Tennessee Aquarium and others are in the field at designated Chattanooga locations.
