Welcome to Wachiska Audubon Society

Our 42nd Year of Protecting Nature 1973 - 2015

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 13 counties in Southeast Nebraska.
