The Sandhill Crane migration through West-Central Nebraska’s Platte River basin is a natural phenomenon that has spanned tens of millions of years. The migratory route established by these birds through the wetlands of the Great Plains has fostered an important connection between the species, the land and the waterways. The Sandhill Crane has thrived for millennia in part, due to the bounty of the land and waters of the great Nebraska prairie.
