After an energy-saving modified winter schedule, on Friday, March 1, the Audubon Center & Sanctuary is returning to being open every day.
Located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, Nature Center building hours are
Monday-Saturday 10 am-4:30 pm and Sundays 1-4:30 pm.
Visitors can enjoy displays of local reptiles, including a variety of snakes and turtles, and amphibians, like frogs and a toad, plus tanks of fish. They can also sit and observe a beautiful view, seeing birds, chipmunks, squirrels and sometimes even deer at the Center’s bird feeders.
The Frog Exhibit allows visitors to hear the peeps, groans, trills, snores and grunts of local frogs. The Energy Exhibit demonstrates how to save electricity through simple changes at home.
In the third floor Sky Room you will feel like you are outdoors with majestic hawks flying overhead.
The Nature Center building is also home to the Nature Store, which features a wide variety of gift items and bird seeds.
Outdoors, Audubon offers miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing.
Members and children are admitted to the exhibits free of charge; non-member adults pay only $5. Sunday is a free admission day.
Visitors are welcome to walk or ski the trails or visit Liberty, a non-releasable bald eagle, free of charge daily, from dawn until dusk. Liberty is on display in her own enclosure behind the Nature Center building, where she can fly short distances.
