Sandhill Crane Wetland Tours are offered at the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve the first three Saturdays and Sundays of each month now through February. The reserve is located just west of Lodi and offers managed wetland habitat that attracts the sandhill cranes each year. Tours, led by docents and open to the public, begin two hours before sundown.
Visitors can register for tours up to eight weeks in advance online at www.wildlife.ca.gov/regions/3/crane-tour.
Self-guided tours, highlighted by a set of interpretive panels, also are available at the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve South Unit, 11154 W. Woodbridge Road, Lodi.
