This camera is oriented to the southeast and looks downstream on land owned by the Nebraska Public Power District. The area is an active study site for the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program researching river flow and sediment strategies. The river islands like the one in the frame are periodically disked to keep vegetation in check. Trees were cleared along the south bank to create more open habitat in 2010-2011. This is a foraging area for the federally endangered least terns and piping plovers and is periodically used as a crane roost. This camera was retired several years ago.
