Crane Trust Episode of “The Visionaries” Airs April 11 on NET Television

LINCOLN, Neb. (March 26, 2014) -- NET Television will broadcast a Nebraska-based episode of the series “The Visionaries” on NET1 on Friday, April 11, at 7 p.m. CT. The 30-minute documentary was filmed last year at the Crane Trust, located south of Alda, Neb., and focuses on Nebraska’s Crane Trust and its management of 10,000 acres along the Platte River to preserve habitat for whooping cranes, sandhill cranes and other birds during spring and fall migrations.

The Crane Trust was formed in 1978 as part of a settlement over construction of the Grayrocks Dam on a tributary of the Platte River in Wyoming. “The Trust today stands with its conservation partners as a testament to the lasting good that can be achieved when people of different interests and goodwill come together to act on behalf of one of the most extraordinary ecosystems on the planet,” said Chuck Cooper, Crane Trust president and chief executive officer.
