  • And that poet is Tricia Beem with the CVB in Grand Island--a woman thoroughly devoted to promoting the state of Nebraska. She even did a poetry reading of her works at The Hanlon House B&B in Scottsbluff!

Sanhill Crane Migration

I was just in the Kearney/Grand Island area last week for the Sanhill Crane Migration, really an amazing event. If any one is planning on going, I've got tips. There are certainly free/public viewing areas, but for as little as $25 you can access the blinds at the Rowe Nature Sanctuary and get much closer along with some valuable education about the crane migration.
