Upcoming Events

May 9, 2015

May 9th is International Migratory Bird Day! Come and join us for a “Big Morning Bird Count” at the Crane Trust. Meet at the Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center parking lot at 8 AM, divide into teams, and see who can document the most bird species for the morning. This event is an opportunity to have access to Trust properties that are normally closed to the public, including historic Mormon Island.

Please bring your binoculars, a scope if you have one, and a notebook for recording your sightings. A good bird ID book is recommended, and cameras are welcome. The count will include both walking the nature center trails and driving to other Trust properties. Bring a sack lunch for after the count, so we can compare notes on birds seen.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required. To pre-register, contact Karen at 308.384.4633, ext. 5, or via email at
