Hear the captivating call of sandhill cranes with Hank Lentfer, naturalist and writer, as he shares the natural history of the ancient-looking long-legged birds that stop off each autumn near his home in Gustavus at this week’s Fireside Lecture at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center.
Learn how Lentfer’s affection for cranes led him to the very thing he was trying to avoid. His newest book is “Faith of Cranes: Finding Hope and Family in Alaska,” which will be available for purchase and signing.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and presentations begin at 6:30 pm. and again at 8 p.m.
