Nature & Visitor Center

The Crane Trust is home to a beautiful Nature and Visitor Center that welcomes guests to the Crane Trust’s rare, protected lands year round—and to the great sandhill crane migration in the spring.

You’ll have full access to the center and when you venture outside, you’ll encounter our butterfly garden, a herd of American bison and roughly 10 miles of nature trails along the Platte River.

The Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center was selected as a 2017 Nebraska Passport stop! The Passport program features 80 attractions on 10 themed tours. Travelers have from May 1 through September 30 to visit the attractions and get stamps. Order your 2017 Nebraska Passport at and stop in for your stamp.
