Rowe Sanctuary: Platte River Program

Posted: Updated:


Rowe Sanctuary will present a program on November 7  at 7:00 p.m. on the conservation efforts on the Platte River geared to adults. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about the management of the river used by Sandhill cranes and other birds and animals for habitat.  

Rowe's mission is to conserve Platte River ecosystems for cranes and other wildlife through conservation and education.  For years, Rowe Sanctuary has worked with a diverse group of private citizens, agencies, and organizations to find, develop and implement solutions to conservation issues on the Platte River that benefit all Nebraskans.  

Rowe now owns and manages 1,900 acres on the Platte River and is staffed by 6 employees responsible for all educational programming, conservation work and fundraising. The sanctuary is open to the public and serves local communities, as well as visitors from around the world.

Education is a key component of Rowe's mission.  We offer year-round programs that encourage people of all ages to learn about and interact with the outdoors. 

Participants are welcome to join our volunteers for a short meeting followed by a potluck dinner starting at 6:00 p.m. 

If you haven't visited Rowe yet, plan to come out and get familiar with the hidden treasure on the Platte River.  Rowe is located along the south channel of the Platte River, two miles south of I-80 Gibbon exchange and two miles west on Elm Island Road.    

The Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary is dedicated to the conservation of the Platte River and the birds that rely on it. Rowe Sanctuary is open year-round and features hands-on nature education programs for children and adults. Please visit for more information or call 308-468-5282.
