Our annual outdoor dinner fundraiser takes place each September to promote Spring Creek Prairie's conservation efforts. The 2018 event will be held Sunday, September 16, 4:00-7:00 pm.

Enjoy the beautiful autumn landscape and help us support the prairie as we enjoy live music, wine, and a delicious buffet meal served prairie style. Bring your own plate to decorate your place at the table, but we will have silverware (and a trash bag for you to take your plate home in).

The evening’s pre-dinner entertainment will be provided by the always fabulous Lightning Bugs, and we are excited to announce that our after-dinner musical guest will be Kellyn Wooten. Kellyn is currently the star of the musical "ALWAYS, PATSY CLINE" in Omaha.

Wonderful art, nature experiences, and lots of other items will be available during silent and live auctions. Tickets are $135/person, with $95 of it a tax-deductible donation to Spring Creek Prairie.

Call 402-797-2301 or e-mail us for more information and to be put on our mailing list.

Thanks to our sponsors: Ameritas, David Clark Framing, and Eagle Printing and Sign.
