Click to read all about my adventures this week and how I learned the importance of collaboration among organizations striving towards a common goal!

Starting today our Saunders fellow, Amanda Medaries, will be posting her experience throughout the year at the Crane Trust! Join her every Friday on all social media platforms and every other Friday here on the Prairie Pulse! Today’s post is about her first glimpse into the Crane Trust, which includes pictures of some of the avian species seen during our avian migration surveys, as well as some of the bison we manage to better understand their role in prairie ecosystem health!

We counted an estimated 18,900+/-1,100 Sandhill Cranes in the Central Platte River Valley (CPRV) between Chapman and Overton, Nebraska, on 12 April 2021.
