Out of an abundance of caution due to the recent increase in the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) awareness in Nebraska, the Crane Trust will be closed to guests and volunteers starting March 12, 2020 through August 1st, 2020. We are not aware of anyone that has tested positive for the COVID 19 (Coronavirus) visiting the Crane Trust.
We’re deeply sorry for any inconvenience and we truly appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
The Crane Trust is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that is dedicated to protecting, maintaining, and restoring the physical, hydrological and biological integrity of the Big Bend reach of the Platte River through science, habitat management, and education. We rely on volunteers and donations to support and fund our organization’s mission.
