On July 18, Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center welcomed six new members to their Stewardship Advisory Board. Two Crete community members have agreed to serve the three-year appointment: Jeff Hagaman and Eric Rasgorshek.
“Spring Creek Prairie relies heavily upon the guidance of the Stewardship Board. We are excited to welcome two Crete members as I know their input will strengthen our growing efforts to engage more people at the prairie.” Director of Audubon Nebraska, Marian Langan, said.
Spring Creek Prairie board members serve as advisors concerning many aspects of the center, such as conservation planning, education programming, marketing and fundraising. Through such efforts, opportunities continue to grow for local families, organizations and businesses to become involved.
“I look forward to serving on the Spring Creek Prairie Stewardship board. SPC is interactive, educational and fun for people of all ages and I welcome the opportunity to become more involved.” Rasgorshek said. “My family enjoys the trails and education center and we hope to spend even more time there.”
This summer, Crete Public Schools and the Crete Public Library have brought many groups to Spring Creek Prairie. Visit www.springcreekprairie.org for details on public events, education classes, rental space and the Crete Prairie Club.
“I am excited to work on the stewardship board of the Spring Creek Audubon Prairie because our environment and communities are so connected. This particular plot of prairie has seen migrations of bison and birds and people. It is now our turn to explore and care for this place at this time.” Hagaman said
