Nebraska Crane Season

February 15 - April 15


Every March, over 600,000 Sandhill Cranes converge on the Platte River Valley in central Nebraska to fuel up before continuing north to their nesting grounds. One of the greatest wildlife spectacles in North America, this gathering of cranes is the largest in the world. Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary is at the heart of this magnificent crane staging area. Rowe Sanctuary offers guided viewing experiences to see the spectacular concentrations of Sandhill Cranes. For more information about viewing options, check out our website: rowe.audubon.org or call 308-468-5282. Reservations open January 2, 2019 at 9 am CST.
