Jeff Lange presents
Dance of the Sandhill Crane
Monday, June 26, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

Jeff Lange will be speaking about and presenting his film, “The Dance of the Sandhill Crane”, which is filmed around Petoskey. This film follows a Sandhill crane family through the nesting season. Throughout the film, you will witness courtship dancing, chick hatching, life around the marsh and beyond, and intense sibling rivalry, which is a significant cause of chick mortality. Jeff is the founder of, an organization that seeks to restore loon-breeding lakes and territories throughout Northern Michigan. He is also a singer/songwriter who plays at various music venues throughout Michigan, and is fond of kayaking Ontario’s Goulais and Agawa Rivers.
