we go as much as we can with our yearly membership. There are a lot of wooded trails to walk on too.

This is a must see for anyone who loves cranes, or birds in general. We spent an hour and a half there on a freezing cold day, and loved watching the cranes. The movie on the saving of the Whooping Cranes is short and spellbinding. Don't miss it! Our international visitors were very impressed with the efforts of the ICF in their countries, and the clear labeling of the exhibits.

International Crane Foundation is definitely worth a visit. The information on the birds and their habitats is interesting, and the birds are beautiful.

The ICF is truly the world center for crane study - the name is no hype. Every variety of crane species existent in the world is on view here. Too many people come to the Dells/Baraboo area and only see the garish amusement park type attractions. I strongly recommend bringing kids here - it is very cool to see their fascination getting up close with these large graceful birds. Also, it is a peaceful outdoor setting with friendly and helpful staff - decompress from high-stress vacationing with this terrific place. Do not be put-off with the fact that it will also be "educational"!

I love visiting the International Crane Foundation. Beautiful pathways lead you to some of the most striking birds in the world, from all over the world. The staff is very helpful and friendly. A visit here educates you as to the status of cranes worldwide. The beauty of these magnificent birds is awesome. The gift shop has crane and bird related items that are educational as well as lovely. I love the pavilion where the whopping cranes are kept in a very natural setting, and where you have great opportunities to photograph these fantastic birds.
