Audubon Friends, this is a reminder that ticket sales at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary (Gibbon, NE) are now open.  If you have never seen the migration of the Sandhill Cranes, do put this on your “bucket list”.  In March and into early April, Rowe Sanctuary reports that “over a million Sandhill Cranes converge on the Platte River Valley in central Nebraska”.  They are on their way north to breed and the Platte River environment has everything that they need to rest and refuel for their trip.

We are so fortunate to be right next door to this amazing migration event.

Rowe Sanctuary is an easy ~ 5-hour drive from southeastern Wyoming; just get on I-80 and head east.  Tickets go quickly!  There are other viewing locations in the area including the Plautz Crane Viewing Deck (on Lowell Road) and Fort Kearny State Recreation Area.

For more information about the 2023 Crane Season and to purchase tickets, visit the Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary website today!
