Protecting birds and their habitats

Audubon's conservation work on this property and leadership in collaborative efforts to protect tallgrass prairie are critical to the future of many declining grassland birds and plant species.
The treatied and unceded land that Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center currently manages for birds and operates its visitor center upon has a rich history of native peoples living with the land. We recognize that we are not the first land stewards of the tallgrass prairie in southeastern Nebraska. As we continue this legacy of care for the prairie and all the wildlife, plants, water, and people who need it, we acknowledge the history, knowledge, and culture of those who have come before us on the land (Pawnee, Otoe, Missouria, Kansa) and those that work alongside us today (Ponca, Omaha, & Winnebago Tribes of Nebraska). As you enjoy your visit, please take a moment to acknowledge the people on whose sacred land you walk.
