Nebraska’s Sandhill Cranes Tour
March 27 – 28, 2019
Bus leaves from the Sam’s Club parking lot at 1101 73rd St. in Des Moines on March 27 at 7:30 a.m.
Join us for this tour to Nebraska to experience the migration of more than 600,000 sandhill cranes as they migrate north. Upon arriving in Kearney, Nebraska, we will meet a local guide who will educate us on the sandhill cranes as we drive through the countryside, viewing the cranes as they feed in the fields. We’ll also be on the lookout for a rare sighting of whooping cranes.
We’ll check in to our hotel before we head to an early dinner at Skeeter Barnes restaurant. You’ll have a choice of three entrees, all which are served with bread pudding. As the sun begins to set, we’ll head to the Platte River valley to see the sandhill cranes settling in for the night. It will be quite the sight and sound as the cranes land on the protected sand bars.
To begin day two, we’ll enjoy breakfast at the hotel. Our stops on day two will include:
The Classic Car Museum – Enjoy browsing the collection that includes more than 200 vintage cars from the early 1900s to the modern age.
The Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA) – MONA is home to the official art collection of the state. You’ll learn about the collection and a brief history of the building and then enjoy a self-guided tour.
The Archway – The Archway spans over Interstate 80 and is a tribute to the adventurers who traveled the Great Platte River Road through Nebraska and helped to build America. Inside you can walk with the pioneers over the Oregon Trail, hear Mark Twain’s account of a cross-country stage coach trip, and more.
Enjoy a catered lunch buffet before heading back to Des Moines.
Be sure to bring binoculars, warm clothes, and appropriate walking shoes or boots.
The Sandhill Crane migration is a natural event. Bankers Trust cannot predict the exact number of cranes you may see. We have planned the trip during a time that typically has a large number of cranes in the area.
Cost: $362/per person, single occupancy; $298 per person, double occupancy; $278 per person, triple/quad occupancy.
Cedar Rapids Plant Exchange
May 3, 2019, 2 – 4:30 p.m.
Bankers Trust Blairs Ferry Branch, 400 Blairs Ferry Rd. NE, Cedar Rapids
Fall is upon us! As you’re preparing your gardens for winter, make a note to divide your perennials in the Spring and save extra seed pods.
In May, we’ll get together to exchange perennials and seeds, share gardening tips and tricks, and gain knowledge from fellow gardeners. This is a great way to expand your garden and try new varieties of plants at no cost!
