Audubon Nebraska unites people for the benefit of birds, wildlife, and habitat across Nebraska, including Spring Creek Prairie and Iain Nicolson (Rowe Sanctuary) Audubon Centers.
HOW WE USE YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS:
- $1 per week could provide an insect net, magnifier, and other tools for students to use exploring our ecosystem throughout the year. ($52)
- $2 per week is the cost of one pair of binoculars for use by students and adults in various citizen-science and discovery learning opportunities throughout the year. ($104)
- $5 per week could cover expenses for one acre’s worth of native seed mix. When restoring new areas and improving existing habitat, these seeds brings the mix of grasses and wildflowers that the birds, bugs, and other wildlife need for food and shelter. ($260)
- $10 per week could cover the cost of burning 25 acres of our native prairie. This is an authentic and crucial part of conserving a flourishing native plant diversity at our 3,000+ acres of protected habitat in Nebraska. ($520)
- $20 per week is the cost of a week-long camp for a group of Nebraska students, who will get to fully immerse in hands-on, discovery-based learning at one of our education centers. ($1040)
A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center near Lincoln, through the eyes of a Fourth Grader: Thank you so much for telling us about the prairie. I can’t wait to tell my family about the great time I had. I hope my parents will let us see the prairie. I’m sure that they will love to hike on all the trails, and see the pond and the cottonwood tree.
This was one of the best field trips I have ever gone on, and you made it way more fun. You are the best!
Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary, from Aurora Fowler: Rowe Sanctuary has always been a part of my life; I grew up exploring the river and listening to the cranes. This place I call home was also my classroom. Staff and volunteers opened my eyes to the world around me. Now I help other kids take time to look at the little things.
I have listened to adults talk about the threats to the cranes and the future of the river. It is very frustrating for me to realize that in the future, the cranes might not be here for everyone to see.
As I watched kids fall in love with the river this summer, they gave me hope. We are hope. All of us are hope for the future of this river.
