Spring Creek Prairie’s Annual Event Now Hosted Virtually

Formerly Tastes in the Tallgrass, this event will be part live auction, part Zoom presentation

The annual fundraising event at Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center (formerly known as Tastes in the Tallgrass) will now be hosted virtually on Sunday, September 13. "Tune in to the Tallgrass" will feature a live online auction, premade food for pickup, and a special Zoom presentation starting at 6 pm.

“Each September we look forward to hosting so many friends at Spring Creek Prairie for our annual fundraiser, Tastes in the Tallgrass,” said Meghan Sittler, center director for Audubon’s Spring Creek Prairie. “While we would love to be hosting everyone at the prairie we are excited to have our friends ‘Tune in to the Tallgrass’ with us.”

The auction page is now live and will be accepting bids on Friday, September 11 at 6 pm. There is a variety of items available including art pieces, jewelry, a crane viewing experience, gift baskets, and much more. The page will close at 8 pm on September 13.

Sittler hopes for people to join “for food, fun, music and to help keep the prairie thriving.”
