January is the peak of the annual Sandhill Crane Migration when thousands of these beautiful birds converge on the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge in Birchwood, TN, just an hour from Chattanooga. If you haven’t seen these elegant creatures in person, you should make it a New Year’s resolution for 2019. We’ve highlighted this unique wildlife experience as this month’s local adventure to try in our January 2019 Newsletter. In it you can also find information on First Day Hikes in all 56 Tennessee State Parks, our weekly Winter Workshop Series starting this month, MLK Day of Service on January 21, and the Lookout Wild Film Festival later this month.
