“cranes on the plains”

Lillian Annette Rowe Bird Sanctuary, commonly known as Rowe Sanctuary, is dedicated to the conservation of sandhill cranes, whooping cranes and other migratory birds, and their habitat along the Platte River in southcentral Nebraska. Owned and managed by the National Audubon Society, the original purchase of 782 acres in 1974, which was funded by Lillian Annette Rowe of Trenton, NJ, included 2.5 miles of river channel, wet meadows, and some agricultural fields. Additional land acquisitions have increased the current size of the sanctuary to nearly 1,900 acres. Along with preserving habitat for wildlife, nature-based education is a major focus at the Iain Nicolson Audubon Center, where year-round education opportunities exist for local schools and the general public. Please contact us at 308-468-5282 if you have any questions.

My brother and I devoted out day to seeing the Sandhill cranes of Nebraska. They're amazing raptor-like creatures and best seen in March and April. But if you're like us be sure to plan your trip well in advance. Tours sell out and timing is everything. Call ahead of time and bring appropriate clothing and equipment!
