We are still in the planning stages for the 2013 Festival of the Cranes. This year's cover art is Halo's Bond by Cynthia Duff. Please see details from last year's show below.
We are currently seeking cover art for the 2014 Festival of the Cranes. Please email submissions to email@example.com by May 31, 2013.
The Friends of the Bosque announce the opening of the 2013 Festival of the Cranes photo contest! Entry fees remain the same as last year, but we've increased the number of potential entries to 20. We've gone completely digital, with all submissions and payments done online. Please go to our 2013 PHOTO CONTEST PAGE for rules, FAQ's, and entries. The contest will be open through September 24, 2013. Check out the 2012 winners.
Looking to plan your travel now? Make sure to check out our lodging page and make your reservations through the links from Reservetravel. Prices are usually the same as with other travel sites, and the Friends receive 6% back as a donation! We've made almost $1,400 in two years of this partnership. It's a win-win for everyone!
