More protection for Sandhill Cranes and Whooping Cranes. The Audubon Society has announced the purchase of 590 more acres along the Platte River right next to the current Rowe Sanctuary. It includes about one mile of river channel on the south side of the main Platte River channel, 500 acres of wet meadows, and 80 acres of row-crop land. The value of that land is about 2 million dollars.
