Other Crane Tours
California Department of Fish and Wildlife
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife hosts a docent program offering public crane viewing tours. Tours are held at Woodbridge Ecological Reserve, also known as Isenberg Sandhill Crane Reserve, the first 3 weekends of each month from October through February. The one exception is the weekend of the Lodi Sandhill Crane Festival, when tours are offered throughout the weekend by the Festival and require separate pre-registration. For more information on viewing the Sandhill Cranes, visit CA Fish & Wildlife's website or call (209) 234-3435.
