Crane Fiesta is a cost-free event; however, you must be registered for the webinar(s) of your choice to receive the links to view them.
If you enjoy these programs and want to see more, we invite you to donate to Friends of Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge so that we can offer additional events to support Bosque del Apache!
Crane Fiesta 2020 will be a mix of virtual medias. Friends of Bosque del Apache have partnered with many educational, conservation, and photography groups to bring you pre-recorded featured videos, live webinars, and other virtual events.
The pre-recorded features will be posted on our Facebook page at the time listed; however, they will also be posted here by 8 AM on the date listed. Registration is not required for these.
We require registration for the live webinars. Registrants will receive webinar details, including the Zoom webinar invitations, starting in November. We will not be sending out recordings of the photography webinars after the event.

Facebook Live with Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge Staff
Sponsored by Friends of Bosque del Apache and Bosque del Apache staff
It’s early, it’s dark, and it’s cold, but you’ll be joining us live from the comfort of your home! When thousands of cranes and geese take flight, the sights and sounds are spectacular!
Unlike most of our other live webinars, you are not required to register for either Fly In or Fly Out on Thursday and Saturday. All other live programs will be accessible through Zoom; however, this event will be a Facebook Live event.
Registering for this free program will ensure that you are sent the Facebook Live link; however, this will be on our Facebook page for all to access, and it will be posted here.
