On Wednesday, May 20, the Audubon Society of Omaha will participate in the Omaha Gives! online fundraiser, a 24-hour, community-wide event to raise money for nonprofits in Douglas, Sarpy, and Pottawattamie counties.

More than 480 creative entries this year made judging the student artwork a challenge. Although we had to cancel the Art Show and Awards Ceremony, we are still awarding prizes and ribbons, which will be distributed to the winners when we get a chance to return the artwork. For a little taste, here are the Best in Show winners for 2020. Thanks to students, teachers and volunteers!

Many recent and upcoming ASO events have been canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the March Member Meeting with photographer Mike Benkis was postponed.

Now is the time to proclaim, “YIMBY, or ‘Yes, in my backyard!’” Your guide to setting up backyard feeding stations.

Together, Audubon Society of Omaha’s fall and winter birdseed sales netted $8,000, which will enable ASO to continue to sponsor education and conservation programs over the coming year.

And what is so rare as a day in June? A Northern Parula Warbler in Western Nebraska, for one thing (with apologies to James Russell Lowell). The species you’ll spot in late spring vary by location and month.

Across our region, spring is often viewed as the burning season, as crews draft burn plans, prepare equipment, train new workers and create firebreaks.

Help inform, influence and shape how local officials impact the environment with a letter, phone call, Facebook post or, of course, Tweet that advocates for birds and other wild creatures in our unique ecosystem. 

A bequest to Audubon Society of Omaha is a gift to those who will succeed us and secure our natural heritage.

May Member Meeting and Banquet is canceled. Field trips are canceled.
