Our 13th Annual Fellowship Trip is coming up…May 15-17, 2020

Over the past 12 years of Spring Fellowship Trips, we’ve always enjoyed our travels through the Nebraska Sandhills. So, for our 13th Anniversary Spring Fellowship Trip, we’re planning another amazing adventure in the Sandhills! This trip will be to the central Sandhills in the Stapleton/Thedford/Mullen area. We’ll stay at the Roadside Inn in Thedford and visit with ranchers, historians, conservationists, and others as well as ‘tank’ down the Middle Loup River, view another sculpture garden, take a quilt barn tour, and share in fellowship throughout the trip. We will also climb bare sand dunes, walk on a fen, visit with land-owners about development and conservation issues, identify native plants and birds, and learn about the history and culture of African Americans in the Sandhills. As always, we’ll see some of the most picturesque scenery in Nebraska, especially if you like rivers and lakes, grassland landscapes with prominent dunes and wet meadows, and ranch headquarters. Late spring is the ideal time to visit the Sandhills because of warm days and cool nights, relatively few bugs, green hills and meadows, and active ranch schedules (including calving, branding, and moving cattle to summer pastures). We will leave around 12 noon on Friday, May 15 and return by late afternoon on Sunday, May 17.
