We exist to  protect and maintain the physical, hydrological and biological integrity of the Big Bend area of the Platte River so that it continues to function as a life support system for whooping cranes, sandhill cranes and other migratory bird species. With your help we can make a difference. Learn more and get involved.

Like Whooping Cranes, Peregrine Falcons have shown us how endangered species can come back from the brink of extinction in response to conservation efforts.

The Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center will open our tour bookings for the spring Sandhill Crane Migration on January 4, 2019.

Those of us who are crazy about cranes are sometimes called “craniacs,” and one particular craniac, Deb Miller, has even put this nickname on her car’s license plate for all the world to see!
