Audubon's Nebraska Crane Festival brings together hundreds of crane lovers from around the country to Kearney, Nebraska, to interact with a wide range of environmental speakers, take part in incredible birding trips, and, best of all, experience the world's largest gathering of Sandhill Cranes!

On-line registration is tentatively scheduled to begin in early December. Write us to be put on a mailing list for updates

Please consider joining us for next year's fun. Watch this page as we announce speakers and field trips for 2019.
