Crane Festival Guest Speaker Paul Tebbel
Guest Photographer Christy Yuncker Happ


Our guest speaker this year is Paul Tebbel. Here is an exerpt from his Bio.... "Few people have spent as much of their lives around cranes as Paul Tebbel. Introduced to them as a senior in college in 1975, he spent 3 summers searching for crane nests and families in the bogs, woods and fields of northern Michigan and central Ontario. His field biology career path never really got started as his early job possibilities disappeared when President Reagan cut all federal spending on wildlife research. He drifted to southern California where he found a part-time job in a backpacking store that was run by the owners of a new line of clothing called Patagonia. For 11 years he helped steer this company to walk the talk of their environmentalism. But he never lost his devotion to these tall, gangly birds, often traveling to their wintering grounds in the southern part of California’s central valley. Eventually the pressure of nearby Los Angeles was more than he could bear and he was lured away in 1995 by National Audubon Society who sought a new manager for their small sanctuary on the Platte River in Nebraska...."

Christy Yuncker Happ is a photographer whose images and videos tell us much about Sandhill Crane biology. She has photographed and studied one pair of nesting Sandhill Cranes continuously for 21 years. Her image "Caterpillar Sushi" is our 2016 Crane Festival poster.
