The Nebraska Wildlife Federation is celebrating 50 years of promoting the state's wildlife.
The federation will be hosting a kickoff event to celebrate the half-century of service at the Crane Trust Visitor Center near Wood River on March 7 from 2-7 p.m. The event will feature speakers and an informal reception from 4-5 p.m., as well as a chance to view the sandhill cranes.
Throughout its 50 years, the federation has worked to preserve the Big Bend area of the Central Platte River for sandhill and whooping cranes, as well as preserve the river for wildlife.
Additional events are planned for later this year, including a 50th anniversary gala at Mahoney State Park on Oct. 23.
