Our Mission

Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center focuses on conservation of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem and the birds that rely on it.

Year of the Bird

January marks the official launch of the Year of the Bird – an exciting partnership between National Geographic, Audubon, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, BirdLife International, and dozens of other partners, in honor of the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

The Year of the Bird will be about celebrating the wonder of our feathered friends, examining how our changing environment is driving dramatic losses among bird species, and highlighting what actions people can take to reverse this trend.

Check out the exciting details on National Audubon’s website.

In the News

Read this great article in the Lincoln Journal Star about Jason the Birdnerd and his efforts to diversify our audiences. And now this program has gone national!
