During the total eclipse on August 21st, 2017 the Crane Trust team hosted hundreds of people who wanted to see this once in a lifetime spectacle.

However, the spectators were largely unaware of the “behind-the-scenes” efforts taking place to study the eclipse: http://eclipse.Re

The closer we get to opening our public crane tours, the more we get asked, "What is better, morning or evening?"

But what do you prefer?

Ever since we introduced #bison to our property we have been studying the effects they have on the prairie, and specifically on the #migratorybirds that breed here, many of which are of conservation concern. #protectprairie

We will be closed on Saturday, November 10th and Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans Day. We want to thank our Land Manager, Tim Smith, for his 4 years of service with Marines with an honorable discharge, and all veterans for all they have done and continue to do. 

Last Saturday, @CenterforRuralAffairs collaborated with us to help both new and existing veteran farmers get the services they need to get started in the agriculture business. For more information on how veterans can get help with farming, call the Center for Rural Affairs at (402) 687-2100. https://nebraska.tv/news/local/veterans-and-new-farmers-learning-how-to-get-started-in-the-agriculture-business

In honor of #NationalBisonDay on Saturday we thought it would be good to learn about the past, enjoy the present, and plan for the future of our national mammal.
