Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary


Gibbon, NE

Lillian Annette Rowe Bird Sanctuary, commonly known as Rowe Sanctuary, is dedicated to the conservation of sandhill cranes, whooping cranes and other migratory birds, and their habitat along the Platte River in south central Nebraska. Owned and managed by the National Audubon Society, the original purchase of 782 acres in 1974 included 2.5 miles of river channel, wet meadows, and some agricultural fields. Additional land acquisitions have increased the current size of the sanctuary to nearly 1,900 acres.
