The Cranes

 

Every spring, 80% of the world’s Sandhill cranes stop in central Nebraska as they migrate north to their summer home. They arrive as early as Valentines Day and remain in the area for five to six weeks. This traditional timepiece has taken place for millions of years.

The Platte River, which runs west to east through the state, is perfect for this majestic bird to rest, strengthen, and energize…

But stakeholders of the river’s water have increased their interest as river levels decrease—risking the loss of an entire species in our lifetime.

The beauty and enchantment of five hundred thousand cranes under the vast sky of Nebraska provide a perfect story-telling canvas.
