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.

As our bison herd continues to grow at the Crane Trust, so do our efforts to understand their effects on the prairie we manage, and specifically on the migratory birds that breed here, many of which are of conservation concern.

In celebration of National Bison Day, I thought I would share some information with you about the Crane Trust Bison Herd.

Last Thursday, Crane Trust science staff and volunteers partnered with the Earl May Garden Center in Hastings to educate their staff and the public about birds and ways we can contribute to their conservation.
