McNEAL, Ariz. — The Arizona Game and Fish Department’s Wildlife Viewing Program will conduct a wildlife viewing and photography tour from 6 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 29, at Whitewater Draw Wildlife Area in McNeal, Ariz.

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission-owned property in the southeastern part of the state is a roosting and loafing place for more than 20,000 sandhill cranes each year. Game and Fish biologists, along with award-winning photographer George Andrejko, will provide an exclusive, up-close opportunity to learn about and photograph these spectacular birds. Andrejko will be available to provide tips, instruction and advice for both novice and experienced photographers. 

The cost is $50 per person. Registration is required, as space is limited. All proceeds support the department’s Wildlife Viewing Program.
