Trails Open/Visitor Center Closed

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 kids and walk the trails. It’s the beginning of migration season and our summer birds are returning. 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. And a reminder that dogs (even on leashes) are not allowed on the prairie trails. 

In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and visitors, and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are closing the indoor areas of our center through April 30. We will continue to monitor the situation with direction from the CDC and other local and state officials. 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.
