Each day will be a total natural history experience! Participation is limited to two 4×4 vehicles. The leaders are Phil Rusch and James Restivo. Regular price is $5485.00, with a $600.00 discount for Connecticut Audubon Society (CAS) members. A Nebraska Sandhill Crane pre-tour is available. Both the Colorado and the Nebraska tours are being conducted by CAS, in conjunction with Bird Treks.
