Did you know that this past summer, Audubon Society of Omaha helped fund the relocation of 233 prairie dogs? After their long-time prairie dog town site was sold and quickly turned into a soybean field, local conservation groups scrambled to save the lives of the remaining prairie dogs and ultimately relocate them to the Hutton Niobrara Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary. Hear about this amazing story from Laura Stastny, Executive Director of Nebraska Wildlife Rehab, Inc. and an invaluable leader of the prairie dog rescue team!
This year’s banquet will be held at Anthony’s Steakhouse. Reservations can be made online or through the mail. Reservations are due by Friday, May 10th.
