Such a beautiful respite from the hustle and bustle of today's busy lives. I live just 45 miles from here and drive by it several times a month. I've always wanted to stop but had never found the time. This year, I made a date with my grown son and his 'Little Brother' to meet there for a day of exploring and a picnic. We had a great day!
Come for a visit during sandhill crane season (Late Feb.-Apr.) and see the amazing spectacle of hundreds and thousands of cranes, geese, and ducks. Bring a picnic or stop in at their snack bar and enjoy your meal outside on their tables that overlook the meadows. It is an excellent place to take a walk as they have groomed trails that take you thru the meadow and up close to the Platte River. There is also an education center, art gallery, and gift shop. Just off the I-80 exit 305 near Alda, Nebraska.
