Sandhill Cranes at Kearney, NE
April 2 @ 7:00 am - April 4 @ 4:00 pm
Each spring, the Platte River in central Nebraska hosts the largest gathering of cranes in the world. This WAS field trip in early April plans to visit the top viewing areas near Kearney, Nebraska. We plan to visit the riverside crane blind of Rowe Sanctuary, the Fort Kearney Hike and Bike trail bridge, the Central Platte Natural Resources District Platte River viewing deck, and the Rainwater Basin’s Funk Wildlife Production Area. Depending on weather conditions and recent bird sightings, these locations may change as needed. There will be a charge to cover vans, blind fees and entrance fees. A block of rooms will be reserved but food and room expense will be on your own.
Additional information will be provided when plans are more complete.
