Conservation Open House
Tuesday, March 21, 2017 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Location: Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center
Description: Join us for a post-lunch coffee hour with the Crane Trust, Platte Basin Timelapse, Nebraska Game and Parks, and others to mingle and learn about conservation on the Platte River. Platte Basin Timelapse and the Crane Trust will present afterwards on various aspects of conservation in Nebraska. Andrew Caven of the Crane Trust will discuss recent findings of the habitat and management contexts associated with the presence of the Regal Fritillary, at 2:30 p.m. Emma Brinley Buckley of Platte Basin Timelapse will present at
3:00 p.m. and discuss timelapse photography and what it tells us about the Platte River Basin. This project is pioneering standard techniques to process the millions of images that can be captured through large scale timelapse. It also allows researchers and educators unique views of the habitat and wildlife in easily communicated ways.
