Crane Trust Headquarters

LOOKING Closer

This location views the main channel of the Platte River, southwest of Grand Island, Nebraska, at the Crane Trust. This stretch of river is managed actively to maintain wide, open channels relatively free from disturbance. During spring migration, sandhill cranes and whooping cranes roost nightly on the shallow sandbars and forage and rest by day in surrounding fields and wet meadows.
