On Monday, October 11, 2021, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., children ages 4 to 12 can join nature educators at Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) for a day of exploration, fun, and learning.

At October Camp, kids spend the day exploring forests, fields, ponds, and how the world is preparing for winter.

Children discover all the fall events – leaves falling, animals migrating, and the earth slowing down – in hands-on activities and lessons guided by a nature educator. Play, the important work of childhood, is also a huge part of the day in the forms of fort building, digging, climbing, wandering, pretending, running, and jumping.

Children bring outerwear, a lunch, a couple snacks, water bottles, and a change (or two) of clothes and footwear. With those supplies, they spend a fun- and discovery-filled day at Audubon.

Cost for the day is $40 for ages 4-12 or $30 for Nature Center member children. Additional siblings receive a $5 discount.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by noon on Thursday, October 8. For more information and to register, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or go to AudubonCNC.org and click on “Register for a Program.”
