Join The Nature Conservancy in our private blinds to watch thousands of sandhill cranes up-close as they roost, dance, and socialize on the Platte River. 

Important considerations before making your reservation:
-There is up to a half-mile walk to and from the blinds on uneven terrain.
-There are no restrooms in the blinds, and all participants must enter and exit as a group (no early exits) to minimize disturbance to the birds.
-We do not allow children under the age of 12 in our blinds.  Please email or call Eliza if you have additional questions on this policy (402) 342-0282 x 1012.

Tours are for members and their guests only and are free of charge.  Want to attend, but you aren't a member?  Join here!
