About This Destination

Don't miss one of the wonders of the natural world. Nearly 500,000 sandhill cranes gather each year from late February thru early April along the Platte River Valley, the second largest migration in North America. Scientists have identified the largest crane roost in the world during the migration just southwest of Grand Island near the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center. Check with the Grand Island Visitors Bureau 800-658-3178 for suggested viewing locations.
