Headwinds and threat of rain shut down hopes for more progress today. A weather system currently over Texas is likely to reach the birds' Union County, Kentucky location by tomorrow morning, bringing 50-mph winds aloft. This is Down Day 1, and tomorrow likely will be Down Day 2.

In the Classroom: Journal or Discussion

It's Saturday: No school, no questions today!

If your school is within 30 or 40 miles of the migration route, you are invited to contact educators and Operation Migration volunteers Gordon and Christine to ask about a classroom visit.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
