Spring Creek Prairie is hiring a field technician who will assist with habitat restoration and management of our 850-acre site, including implementing the habitat management plan on diverse habitats associated with the tallgrass prairie. This is a year-round, full-time, grant-funded opportunity through August / September 2021 with potential to extend beyond should additional funding be secured.
September 10 update: The visitor center building has reopened to the public. Hours are 10 am-2 pm weekdays, but closed on weekends. Trails are open sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. Building hours will be expanded in the months to follow if conditions surrounding COVID-19 improve. Masks are required to be worn by everyone while in the building. Complimentary masks are available at the information desk.
Admission is free, thanks to a generous corporate donation from Liz Lange Consulting.
Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center's trails and grounds are open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. We encourage you to come visit our outdoor spaces and enjoy fresh air and nature—bring along your family and walk the trails (dogs, even on leashes, are not allowed on the prairie trails). As we all take responsibility to slow the spread of COVID-19, 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!
Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center focuses on conservation of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem and the birds that rely on it.
