Greater Sandhill Crane Virtual School Program

Crane Video
Learn about the Greater Sandhill Cranes of Northwest Colorado...a video for third graders, their families & all the Yampa Valley craniacs!

As the host of the annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival, Bud Werner Memorial Library teamed up with the Colorado Crane Conservation Coalition to make an educational video about Greater Sandhill Cranes in the Yampa Valley. In non-COVID years, the region's third grade students get a live in-classroom presentation of this curriculum. We made this video for all the Northwest Colorado third graders and their families to enjoy at home, so together we can keep learning about these ancient and imposing birds that share our landscape. The 22-minute video is geared toward elementary school students, but appropriate for all ages.

Third graders and other young students often participate in the Yampa Valley Crane Festival coloring contest during classroom programs.
