  • Dusty Trails Birding is CONTINUING: The Dusty Trails Sandhill Crane and Prairie Chicken tours are small groups. The capacity for the bus tours to the Crane and Prairie Chicken viewing sites is 8 and the river viewing blind is 9. This will provide ample opportunity to enjoy these experiences while safely maintaining the recommended social distancing. In addition, we will provide hand sanitizer for all of our guests and will thoroughly sanitize all of the surfaces in our bus and the blind between tours. We will be screening our visitors for signs of illness – sneezing, coughing, fever – and also ask them to self-screen. Should anyone exhibit signs of illness, we would ask them to postpone their visit to the 2021 season. Should you decide that you do not want to travel this year, we will honor your reservations for the same tour in the 2021 season.
