Tallgrass Prairie Management

Learn how we help the prairie flourish.

Today, less than two percent of the tallgrass prairie remains, making it one of the rarest ecosystems in North America. Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center is one of the largest remaining remnants of tallgrass prairie in Nebraska. It is a place where visitors can learn about the importance of tallgrass prairie to our health and communities, and at the same time, experience the beauty and majesty of this landscape.

Volunteers Needed! On Saturday, May 6, from 9:00 a.m.-12 noon, we need folks to join us to remove musk thistles and encroaching trees and shrubs from the prairie, weather permitting. Dress to get dirty, equipment will be provided, but if you have an extra shovel please bring it. Write or call us for more information or to sign up.
