As Greater Sandhill Cranes nested and raised their young in wetland areas throughout the Yampa Valley, local photographers captured their images between September 2018 and August 2019. Now the winners will be announced and prizes awarded, along with a slideshow of all the 2019 Photo Contest submissions.

About the Yampa Valley Crane Festival

The Greater Sandhill Crane is an iconic species of the Yampa Valley. Returning in the spring, cranes nest and raise their young in wetland areas throughout the valley. In late summer and early fall, hundreds of cranes from the Rocky Mountain flock join the local birds to rest and feed before continuing their journey south. The festival includes daily crane viewings, expert speakers, films, art exhibits, workshops, family activities and more. All community activities and events are free unless otherwise indicated in the program, and Bud Werner Memorial Library is festival headquarters and the venue for many of these talks, films and events.
