Audubon’s Nebraska Crane Festival 2014
The Audubon’s Nebraska Crane Festival celebrates the arrival of vast numbers of Sandhill Cranes and various waterfowl that have been migrating. Begun in 1971, the festival focuses on education about the environment and wildlife. The 2014 schedule is packed with activities to keep the whole family busy, including birding trips, photography workshops, an historic tour, the Wild Experience Room, a banquet and more. Speakers will include Jen Smith of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (discussing the effects of wind farms on Greater Prairie Chickens), Kent Skagg & Kevin Poague of Audubon Nebraska (with Birding 101), Wayne Mollhoff (talking about the Second Nebraska Breeding Bird Atlas Project), Mary Harner of The Crane Trust (looking at sandhill crane behaviour) and others.
