A member of the Many Moccasins Dance Troup performs

A member of the Many Moccasins Dance Troup performs at last year’s Return of the Thunderbirds event.

Spring Creek Prairie Audubon Center, Renee Sans Souci and the Indian Center of Lincoln invite everyone to join the family-friendly Return of the Thunderbirds from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, April 1, inside and outside the Indian Center, 1100 Military Road.

This special spring event, back for its second year, celebrates both the return of the rain and the "Thunders" or "Thunderbirds" for many upper Plains indigenous peoples, and the return of migratory birds and blooming native plants that mark the season for many others.
