CE: Legends & Stories: The Changing Ecology of the Great Plains

Join us at the National Willa Cather Center as we partner with the 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.
