Have you seen the great Festival banners around San Antonio? They were painted by 4th and 5th graders at San Antonio Elementary. Local businesses - San Antonio General Store, Owl Bar and Cafe, the Buckhorn, and the San Antonio Crane - provided donations to underwrite the materials and paint, and Bosque del Apache staff and the Socorro Electric Co-op generously assisted in the banner hanging.
The 2013 Festival of the Cranes Photo Contest was a wonderful success. Please check out our 2013 winners. These photos will be on display at the refuge during Festival. Thank you to all who entered!
