From March through April Nebraska hosts the annual Sandhill crane migration. These birds date back 10 million years and this is the only place to catch this epic migration in progress. Nature lovers from all over the world come to watch this natural event, including celebrated anthropologist Jane Goodall, known for her groundbreaking work on the chimpanzees in Africa. Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary and Nebraska Nature & Visitor Center are giving away a free pair of tickets for their guided tours. Here are the details of this only-in-Nebraska wildlife event.

Instead of just going to Vegas, exploring ghost towns in Nevada, is a bit more off the beaten path…
Nebraska is more than just corn and the home of the Oracle of Omaha. Who knew that it is one of the only places in the U.S. to see wildlife - the most Sandhill cranes at one time in the midst of their annual migration back north. Who needs to go to Africa to see an epic migration in progress? Legendary anthropologist Jane Goodall apparently knows and makes this annual trip herself.
Besides being the place where Crazy Horse was killed, Nebraska also has a zoo in Omaha that houses the largest indoor rainforest in the U.S., as well as the world’s largest swamp and indoor desert. Who knew? So much to see in this vast country…
