2020 Yampa Valley Crane Festival
The 9th annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival officially begins September 3, 2020. Due to the pandemic we will be holding a different kind of festival this year. We have created and produced a series of fun and educational videos about Greater Sandhill Cranes and other bird and nature-related topics focused on the Yampa Valley of Northwest Colorado. We have also taken some of the most popular crane festival events and turned them into videos for your enjoyment. All videos are available for free through this website. Click here for the list of videos and links. Videos will remain available for viewing throughout 2020.
Crane-viewing activities this year are altered due to the pandemic. Discover what it’s like to go crane viewing near Hayden, CO during the time of the Yampa Valley Crane Festival. Click here to watch this crane viewing video narrated by Ted Floyd and created September 5, 2020.
