The 2015 Sandhill Crane & Art Festival, “CraneFest,” will be held October 10 and 11, 2015.

The event is a coordinated effort of the Kiwanis Club of Battle Creek and Michigan Audubon.

The festival site is the Kiwanis Youth Conservation Area, overlooking Michigan Audubon’s 1,000-acre Bernard W. Baker Sanctuary and its centerpiece, Big Marsh Lake.

The major attraction of the festival is the spectacle of thousands of Sandhill Cranes descending on the expansive, shallow wetland in the evening.

Admission is free with a small parking fee.
