Every year like clockwork, nearly twenty thousand Sandhill Cranes descend on Colorado’s scenic San Luis Valley for a six-week stopover to rest and refuel before continuing their northward spring migration. The Monte Vista Crane Festival is a collaboration of the Friends of the San Luis Valley National Wildlife Refuges, the town of Monte Vista, the Monte Vista Chamber of Commerce, and Rio Grande County. The festival brings many people from all over Colorado and North America. We endeavor to educate the public about these amazing birds and the role that the Monte Vista Refuge plays in providing food and habitat essential for the survival of these majestic birds.
