Conservation and research of the central Platte River is a monumental task that takes an army of dedicated individuals to accomplish. Without partnerships and volunteers our work would not be possible, and we would like to thank the following groups, both past and present, for their support and dedication of our mission to preserve critical habitat for whooping cranes, sandhill cranes, and other migratory birds.
