Legends & Stories: The Changing Ecology of the Great Plains

March 22 @ 5:15 am - 3:30 pm

$90

Join us at the National Willa Cather Center as we partner with Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary and the Willa Cather Archive for an ecotourism day-trip! Begin your day with a sunrise viewing of Sandhill cranes on the Platte River in Rowe Sanctuary’s viewing blinds, followed by a short charter ride to Red Cloud, the hometown of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Willa Cather. Andy Jewell and Emily Rau of the Willa Cather Archive will offer readings and discussion of Cather’s novel O Pioneers! and, once in Red Cloud, guests will enjoy a catered lunch and tour of important Cather historic sites. Author and biologist Caleb Roberts will give a guest lecture before the group visits the Willa Cather Memorial Prairie.  Guests will return to Rowe Sanctuary in the afternoon, and should plan for moderate walking during the day.
