Mud Camp is Audubon Community Nature Center’s spring opportunity for children to explore, learn, and play.

On Monday, April 17, children ages 4-14 are invited to come to Audubon for the day to experience nature first-hand.

Campers will be divided into groups based on grade and engage in a variety of activities that are fun and educational. Each group is led by a naturalist and sometimes the groups will come together for activities.

In addition to games and crafts inside, campers will explore the grounds, looking for birds, snakes, salamanders, tadpoles, and more.

For those who have never been to camp before, this is a great opportunity to see what it is all about.

Children should bring a non-refrigerated lunch, two water bottles, a complete change of clothes and shoes (or boots), and outdoor gear appropriate for the weather forecast.

Cost for the day is $30; $25 for Nature Center members. There is a $5 discount for participating siblings.

With a limited number of openings, paid reservations are required by Thursday, April 13. Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or click through Attend a Program/Programs and Workshops under Plan Your Visit at
