Bringing Back the Cranes: Recovery of the Whooping Crane

Operation Migration and the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership hatched an innovative plan to bring the endangered whooping crane back from the brink of extinction and our Adams County own Jeff Huxmann was there to work with them in 2001 as a videographer. This amazing story involves training young “whoopers” to follow ultralight aircraft on their annual migrations. Jeff produced footage for National Geographic, CBS news, Animal Planet, and others about this project. His film "Bringing Back the Cranes" was a finalist at the International Wildlife Film Festival. Jeff will share clips from this film and share his experiences with this incredible recovery project. For more information contact Preserve Director, Chris Bedel at 937-544-2880 ext. 11 or cbedel@cincymuseum.org

Welcome to Adams County, Ohio.

Imagine a place that has the enduring coziness of a small-town atmosphere from days gone by, yet still resounds with the spirit of today. Imagine a place where you can take a long, easy step back in time to see the prairies that once covered portions of Ohio in the morning, play a round of golf, and watch the sunset over the Ohio River while sipping a glass of local wine.

You can find it in Adams County, Ohio. Find those spots where time stood still, like Blake's Soda Fountain, or wander through Amish shops in the Wheat Ridge Community. Or step back farther and walk along rugged cliff edges and creek beds created hundreds of thousands of years ago. Hike miles of trails or ponder the mysteries of the Great Serpent Mound.

Discover Appalachian handcrafts, quaint towns, or boat the Ohio River and the Ohio Brush Creek from sunup to sundown. Or just find a quiet bank and fish away the afternoon.

Relax beneath cool, comfy sheets at one of our many country inns, hotels, lodges, or cabins.

However you want to enjoy our county - exploring, discovering or finding that special place to just simply kick up your feet and relax - we have something just for you.
