Camp Ashland Platte River

LOOKING Closer

This camera looks west at a sandbar complex along the lower Platte River at the Camp Ashland training site near Omaha, Nebraska. These sandbars are dynamic and support a diverse wildlife community from common waterfowl species to the endangered and threatened interior least terns, piping plover, and pallid sturgeon. This camera will document the ever-changing sandbar community as the river experiences drought or flood conditions and how wildlife responds to these changes.
