Trails Open/Visitor Center Closed

July 9 Update: Our visitor center will reopen on Wednesday, July 15. Hours will be 10 am-2 pm weekdays with free admission! Hours will be expanded in the months to follow if conditions surrounding COVID-19 continue to improve. There was some minor trail damage over the Memorial Day weekend, so please watch your step and follow the signs. Repairs should be done by the end of July. Work has begun on the new trail leading north from the parking lot to our north boundary.

Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center's trails and grounds remain open from sunrise to sunset. We encourage you to come visit our outdoor spaces and enjoy fresh air and naturebring along your family and walk the trails (two reminders: no bathroom facilities are available, and dogs, even on leashes, are not allowed on the prairie trails). It’s nesting season and our summer birds have returned and are busy with their new families. Look for Eastern and Western Meadowlarks, Eastern Bluebirds, and Killdeer, just to name a few. As we all take responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19, please remember to bring hand sanitizer, practice safe social distancing of 6-10 ft (this applies even outdoors), and do NOT share binoculars.

If you are stuck indoors and need a birdy distraction, here is a beautiful page filled with Audubon’s favorite bird photos, videos, and stories.

We are able to provide and protect this amazing landscape only with the help of private donations. If you would like to make a contribution to help us keep the trails open and the prairie thriving, click on the orange “Donate to Protect Tallgrass Prairie” button on the top of this page. Thank you so much for your support!
