Autumn is a time when cold-blooded animals are getting ready for hibernation.

“Snakes and Turtles” is the topic at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday, September 14, 10-11:30 a.m. You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn what they are doing this time of year and visit with some live ones.

After a lesson inside, you will head outdoors to see how many of these reptiles are hanging around Audubon. The program includes a snack and, if time and weather allow, a craft.

Then you can stop by the Blue Heron Gift Shop to check out the store-wide clearance sale. Make a purchase and your name will be put in a drawing for a one-year Nature Center Family Membership.

Little Explorers takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.

The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, September 12, 2019, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to and clicking “Current Schedule.”
