Join Rowe Sanctuary and the Willa Cather Foundation on March 23 or April 7, 2018 for this once in a lifetime viewing opportunity.
Willa Cather loved the Great Plains and celebrated central Nebraska in her novel "My Ántonia". Join us for this event, which will begin at the Rowe Sanctuary at sunrise, where we will enjoy a viewing of the Sandhill Crane migration within one of the Sanctuary’s blinds. Following the Crane Tour, we will travel to Red Cloud for a tour of the many Cather-related sites in and on the outskirts of town, including Cather’s childhood home, and end with a visit to the Willa Cather Memorial Prairie.
Meet the bus at the Holiday Inn in Kearney to be transported to the Rowe Sanctuary before sunrise. Learn more about Willa Cather and the ecology of central Nebraska during the bus ride from Gibbon to Red Cloud, Willa Cather’s childhood home.
