Special Events


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. Annual events include the Art Show, Wild About Nebraska Speaker Series, Pollinator Week, and other engaging events.

Our location just off Interstate 80 makes the Crane Trust Nature & Visitor Center the perfect spot to host your next event! Available rental spaces include a central meeting room, executive boardroom, and catering kitchen. Indoors, enjoy the art gallery, gift shop, and education displays. Just outside the Nature & Visitors Center, you can enjoy a picnic area, bison herd, observation tower and two footbridges leading to nature trails along the north channel of the Platte River. The building is handicap accessible and ideal for groups of up to 100 guests.

Field trips and other school and community events are welcome. Call (308) 382-1820 for more information and to book your event.
