NANPA Regional Events typically take place over 3-4 days—often timed for a long weekend. Events are led by one or more outstanding NANPA members with extensive knowledge of the area. Attendance is limited—typically one leader per 6-10 guests, a maximum of 30 participants. One group meal at the conclusion of the event is usually included in the event price. Individual events can vary somewhat from these norms. Please check the listing for event-specific details.

Join Tom Haxby and Hank Erdmann for brilliant fall colors, breathtaking mountain and water landscapes, and abundant wildlife in America's most visited national park.
In the heart of California’s Central Valley, thousands of acres of flooded farmlands provide a winter home for tens of thousands of Sandhill Cranes that migrate along the Pacific Flyway from Siberia and Alaska. Sandhill Cranes sleep at night in standing shallow water so they can hear approaching predators like coyotes and bobcats. Before sunrise they awaken, their unmistakable vocalizations audible for miles. Then they fly off in small groups, heading for nearby fields to forage all day, and return at sunset en masse. Their exit and re-entrance are both incredible spectacles, often accentuated visually by dramatic sunrises, sunsets and wisps of tule fog.
