THURSDAY, MARCH 21 Enjoy an early spring prairie walk at Glacier Creek Preserve at 6 p.m. Then head to the historic Barn at Glacier Creek to hear Trevor Pellerite’s program on Pocket Prairies at 7 p.m. Learn how his nonprofit foundation, Grasslands Unlimited, is changing the landscape of Omaha’s medians and roadsides into low-maintenance, nature-friendly habitats. Trevor’s program was originally scheduled in January, but Mother Nature put a stop to that! 

Glacier Creek Preserve is a 525-acre preserve located northwest of Omaha at 14810 State Street. It features the 140-acre Allwine Prairie Tract, a restored tall-grass prairie, which sustains a wide variety of plants, birds, animals and invertebrates. Please register HERE.

THURSDAY, APRIL 11 Storytelling has the power to reach new audiences and inspire more people to take action for birds. Conor Gearin, the managing producer of the BirdNote Daily public radio program and podcast, will discuss how compelling stories about birds and birders can help contribute to conservation. He’ll also share insights into designing soundscapes that immerse listeners in the lives of birds. Join us at DJs Dugout, 114th and Dodge. Social hour begins at 6 p.m. and program at 7 p.m. Please register HERE.

SATURDAY, APRIL 20 See all the artwork featuring birds during Audubon Society of Omaha’s 2024 Student Art Show. The show opens at noon, and the awards ceremony starts at 1 p.m. and will be held at Creighton University’s Harper Center. No registration is necessary for this event.
