Visitor Center Reopens

April 26 update: Our visitor center building continues to be open with temporary hours, now open daily 12 noon-4:00 p.m. Admission is free, and visitors are asked to wear a mask while inside.

Our trails and grounds are open from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. There may still be some remnants of trail construction here and there, so watch your step. We encourage you to come visit our outdoor spaces and enjoy fresh air and naturebring along your family and walk the trails. But dogs, even on leashes, are not allowed on the prairie trails. Drones are only allowed on our property as part of research activities, and flights must be approved by and scheduled with staff. 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!
