Birds & Conservation

Audubon on-the-ground programs are the cornerstone of our ability to protect birds across the Central Flyway.

For over 40 years, the Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary has protected habitat along the Platte River for the benefit of migratory birds in the Central Flyway. Rowe Sanctuary works in cooperation with several conservation organizations to provide optimum roosting habitat on the river for Sandhill Cranes and Whooping Cranes, nesting habitat for Interior Least Terns and Piping Plovers, and breeding habitat for a suite of declining grassland nesting birds including Bobolinks and Grasshopper Sparrows.
