Presidents’ Day is an opportunity for winter play and outdoor exploration at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC).
From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, February 19, kids ages five to 14 can have fun at Audubon’s Snow Camp while they learn about winter wildlife, plants, and weather.
Exploring in the winter is magical and provides a window into a world many rarely experience. During this day of free exploration, guided discovery, and play, children learn more about the world around them, how it responds to winter, and how they fit into the season.
Naturalists will lead children in groups through the grounds and inside the Nature Center to connect better with the world around them, share the experience with friends and peers, and celebrate the winter break.
Cost for the day is $30 or $25 for members. Siblings receive a $5 discount.
Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Thursday, February 15. To register, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or click through Plan Your Visit/Attend a Program at auduboncnc.org.
