KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - Sandhill crane watchers are invited to visit Fort Kearny State Historical Park and State Recreation Area in central Nebraska to enjoy the cranes’ spring migration.

The visitor center at Fort Kearney, located five miles southeast of Kearney, will open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 5 through April 10. Staff will answer questions and direct visitors to viewing areas.

One popular viewing location is the hike-bike bridge over the Platte River at the recreation area. The bridge is one-third mile from the parking area. The best viewing times are just before sunrise and sunset.

A park entry permit is required.
