How To Help

Support Our Mission

The Crane Trust is a self-sustaining non-profit organization that depends on your generous support to protect and preserve critical habitat for the endangered whooping crane and sandhill cranes.

With your help, we can ensure that the cranes and other migratory birds continue to thrive along the Platte River for years to come. You can make a difference with an annual Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center membership.

Your membership helps support:

  • Free tours and educational programs for youth organizations
  • Trail and bridge maintenance
  • Crane viewing blinds upkeep and maintenance
  • Keeping the river cleared for the largest roost of sandhill cranes in the world
