Ecological Overview


The Platte River is a complex ecosystem that has influenced its environment for millions of years.

The Crane Trust works to understand the complexities of the Platte River ecosystem and is making progress in preserving the ecological balance of that system. Crane Trust scientists use technology and partnerships to better understand the systems and communicate their findings through photography, time-lapse videos and other means in order to share information to reach a much broader audience outside of the scientific community.
