Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center

The Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center just west of Grand Island is one of the best places in the country to view the Sandhill Crane migration.  Even if it’s not migration season there are plenty of reasons for bird lovers to visit the nature center.  They offer wildlife displays, trails along the Platte River, a 35 foot observation tower, and other year-round birding options.  For anyone heading west on the Hwy 2 for a birding adventure the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center should be your first stop.
