Students from the School of Natural Resources spent part of their spring break perched in blinds at the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center, where they captured the annual migration of the Sandhill cranes in photos and words.

Their voyage to the Platte River was led by Husker faculty Larkin Powell, Michael Forsberg and John Carroll, who head up a field course focused on conserving natural landscapes.
