Annual Crane Fest

Ativities range from  meeting live birds of prey and reptiles up close, to presentations from many of our state and local partners in wildlife conservation. Some of our highlight presentations include the hawks, owls, and falcons of the Environmental Studies Center, the radical reptiles of the Hattiesburg Zoo and special demonstrations of traditional Native American dance and music. Visitors are invited to join refuge staff in special activities to learn more about how we manage the refuge for the Mississippi sandhill crane as well as numerous other species that make their home in the pine savanna habitat found on the refuge.

Free admission, so bring your family to a fun-filled day of outdoor adventure as we celebrate over 40 years of conservation!
