Since social distancing means that you and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life will not be able to come in person to Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) for May’s Little Explorers, Audubon is planning to come to you instead.

Enjoy some at-home learning and “Walk on the Wildflower Side” on Saturday, May 9, 10-11:30 a.m.

Western New York’s wildflower season is upon us. Join ACNC Nature Educator Chelsea Jandreau and discover if April showers actually did bring May flowers to the local forests and fields.

Explore wildflowers and other early spring plants and find out which animals like to buzz around, pollinate, and eat some of those fresh spring buds and colorful petals.

The fee for the online program is $8 for adults, $6 for children and Nature Center members.

Make reservations by Thursday, May 7, 2020, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours (9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday) or by going to AudubonCNC.org/Programs [3] and clicking on “Current Schedule.”

A follow-up email will be sent with links for the online and live portions of the program.

The 2020 Little Explorers series is sponsored by Univera Healthcare. Little Explorers is presented on the second Saturday of every month, 10-11:30 a.m. It is temporarily being presented as an online program via Zoom, but it is traditionally an in-person program that takes place at the Nature Center.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, just east of Route 62 between Warren, Pa., and Jamestown, N.Y. Although the Nature Center building is closed until further notice due to COVID-19 per New York State restrictions, visitors are welcome to walk the six miles of trails and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle, from dawn to dusk daily while practicing safe social distancing measures.

To learn more about Audubon and its many programs, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours, visit AudubonCNC.org [1], or find Audubon Community Nature Center on Facebook.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
