Welcome to Wachiska Audubon Society
Our 41st Year of Protecting Nature 1973 - 2014
For over 40 years Wachiska
Audubon has worked on behalf of birds, wildlife
habitat preservation, responsible urban development and support
of nature education for children and adults.
Wachiska Audubon Society was chartered in 1973 as a local chapter of the National Audubon Society to serve 17 counties in Southeast 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.
Wachiska Audubon is a local chapter of the National
Audubon Society , serving 17 Southeast Nebraska
counties. It is one of four such chapters in Nebraska, and one of more than 500 chapters nationwide.
Monthly meetings feature guest speakers and
programs on a variety of nature and environmental topics.
Chapter members participate in numerous field trips throughout
the year. 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
Butler, Gage, Cass, Colfax, Fillmore, Gage, Johnson, Lancaster, Otoe, Pawnee, Saline, Saunders and Richardson
counties in Southeast Nebraska.
