The international multi-partner Stopover Project tracked Whooping Cranes to find the locations they use on their migrations, information which is desperately needed to further the conservation of the wild Whoopers in this flyway. We are excited to announce that the first of hopefully many publications utilizing this data has been released: https://cranetrust.org/stopover-project/

Speaker Series: The Great American Solar Eclipse 2017
Tuesday, August 16 at 6:30 PM

On August 21, 2017, the path of a total solar eclipse sweeps across the United States from Oregon to South Carolina, passing directly through Nebraska along the way. This is the first total eclipse visible in the lower 48 states since 1979 — and the first seen in the Cornhusker state since 1954.

Where are the best places to see the eclipse in Nebraska and elsewhere? What will it look like? And what will you need to see this rare and spectacular event? Longtime amateur astronomer and solar observer Dan Glomski has viewed a total solar eclipse and will answer these and many other questions. Currently a Mad Scientist at the Edgerton Explorit Center in Aurora, Dan has presented thousands of planetarium shows, presentations and star parties across Nebraska.

Where: Crane Trust Visitor Center, Exit 305 on I-80
When: 3rd Tues. of each month from June - September
What: Bring Potluck to share at 6:30 p.m.; Speaker begins at 7:00 p.m.
Who: Open to the Public. Attend entire event or just the speaker
