On February 22, 1952, a small group of people who had a great deal of curiosity about the natural world, especially birds, met in Scottsbluff. This was the first meeting of the Nature Lovers' Club. Winter meetings were held in homes of members and programs were given by members or special guests about any phase of nature or conservation. In summer, marvelous breakfasts were fixed in someone's yard or in a park and the members would then go on a field trip.By 1957 the name was changed to Nature Club and winter meetings were held in a public meeting room. The location of that meeting room has changed many times over the years. In 1978 the club decided to expand its interests and, on June 1, 1978, a provisional charter from the National Audubon Society was received by the Wildcat Audubon Society.Since that time the Wildcat Audubon Society has had many accomplishments. Our general meetings are now held in a meeting room at the Regional West Medical Center and are open to the public. We have programs on a variety of subjects and we invite anyone interested in birds or wildlife to attend.We have field trips through out the year and encourage beginners to come with us and learn about birds.We appreciate anyone with an interesting bird sighting to contact one of the members to report it. If you can't identify a bird we will be glad to try and help.
We have several field trip to local and regional areas each year and conduct spring, fall and Christmas bird counts.
We have monthly spring and fall meetings with interesting programs
