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 Great Plains Art Show & Sale, the Wild About Nebraska Speaker Series and the Buffalo Stampede Bike Ride. 

The easy access location 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. The building includes an art gallery, gift shop, outdoor picnic area, bison herd, observation tour and two footbridges leading to nature trails along the north channel of the Platte River. Building is handicap accessible and ideal for groups of almost any size.

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