Meeting Room B
Magical Time on Nebraska’s “Crane River”
Each year a world-class spectacle graces the heartland of Central Nebraska. Over 500,000 lesser sandhill cranes spend four to six weeks along the Platte River during their spring migration. Join Ron Cisar as he explores the biology and ecology of this ancient bird that has been a part of our Midwestern fauna for thousands of years.
