Audubon Great Plains is the regional office of the National Audubon Society for Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Using science, habitat restoration, outreach, and education, we holistically address the core threats facing birds in our region. We are a nonpartisan bird conservation organization that collaborates with diverse stakeholders to find solutions to improve and restore bird habitats while engaging our communities.
We believe that where birds thrive, people prosper.
