The next time you visit Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) you will be greeted by a beautifully welcoming Giving Tree in the lobby.
The Giving Tree provides you the opportunity to give a gift to Audubon.
Whether it is the Day Camp program, the animals in the Discovery Room, the wildlife outdoors, or the staff and volunteers who run it all, a little bit goes a long way. You can take a tag from the tree to select a gift you can give.
A list of gift possibilities will also be at Giving Tree on the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
You are welcome to drop off wrapped gifts anytime, but if you do so prior to Wednesday, December 27, children will open the gifts that day at Christmas with the Critters.
Your Giving Tree gift also gives you an admission to the 10-11:30 a.m. Christmas with the Critters program. Call (716) 569-2345 during business hours if you would like more details.
While you are at the Nature Center, you can do some holiday shopping of your own at the Blue Heron Gift Shop. You will be delighted with its varied selection.
The Giving Tree will remain in the lobby of the Nature Center through January 3.
The Nature Center’s new year-round hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Sundays.
