We’ve had fun at Dusty Trails with horseback riding and tanking, but this spring we got to experience the Sandhill Crane migration on a bus tour with Dusty Trails. Saw lots of Cranes and Dusty and his crew are a wealth of knowledge about their behaviors and the Nebraska agriculture we saw on our trip. I highly recommend!

We love the petting zoo that Dusty trails brings to Wallace for the Fall Festival. The animals are all so healthy and well cared for and so gentle.You haven’t lived until you’ve petted a green headed duck or a little sweet goat.
