Sandhill Crane Country

The Sandhill Cranes come to Marquette from far away, flying north in March from the swamps of Florida. Some stop only briefly in the county before scattering on to Minnesota or Canada while others stay on here and raise their new families. The Sandhill Crane almost became extinct in the early 1900’s. Presently it is estimated that there are at least 1,000 Sandhill Cranes in Marquette County alone and some 35,000 throughout their flyway. The Sandhill Crane has made a dramatic comeback thanks to a better understanding of the value of preserving our wetlands and wildlife that depend on them for their very existence. For that reason, there are plenty of cranes around for everyone to enjoy – especially in the pristine marshes of Marquette County.
