KEARNEY — The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, in coordination with the Platte River Recovery Implementation Program, will begin a spring water release as early as Wednesday from the environmental account stored in Lake McConaughy.

The goal is to create a “wide, wetted” Central Platte River channel for endangered whooping cranes migrating from Aransas Wildlife Refuge in Texas to Wood Buffalo National Park in the Northwest Territories of Canada.
