Welcome to Wachiska Audubon Society
Our 43rd Year of Protecting Nature 1973 - 2016
Wachiska Audubon Society was chartered in 1973 as a local chapter of the National Audubon Society to serve 17 counties in Southeast Nebraska. It is one of four such chapters in Nebraska. Dr. Walter Bagley and Betsy Finch founded the local chapter, which began with about a dozen interested folks.
It was thought that Wachiska was an Omaha Indian word meaning land of many streams at a time when Nebraska was considered to have more miles of waterways than any of the contiguous states.
The Mission of the Wachiska
Audubon Society is to preserve and restore native grasslands
and other natural ecosystems, promote birding, support native wildlife, provide educational opportunities
and advocate on behalf of our natural environment and sustainability, especially in Southeastern Nebraska.
Monthly meetings feature guest speakers and
programs on a variety of nature and environmental topics.
Numerous field trips and special events such as the annual Christmas Bird
Count, Birdathon and Backyard Habitat Tour highlight
the program year and draw thousands of people from the community.
Wachiska Audubon provides volunteer and monetary
support to local nature centers and sanctuaries such as Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center and Pioneers Park Nature Center.
Our chapter takes pride in its role of
preserving several tallgrass prairie remnants located in
counties in Southeast Nebraska.
