July 26 update: Our visitor center building is back open with regular hours, Monday-Friday 8:30 am-4:30 pm, and Saturday-Sunday 8:30 am-12:30 pm. Admission is free.
We are no longer requiring fully vaccinated visitors to wear masks, both inside the visitor center and outside. Other guests may use their own discretion as to whether to wear a face covering.
The 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. 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.
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!
The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center focuses on conservation of the tallgrass prairie ecosystem and the birds that rely on it.
