Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is having two year-end sales just in time for your holiday gift buying. And your purchases support Audubon’s nature education programs and facilities that serve thousands of children and adults each year in Chautauqua and Warren Counties.

The deadlines for online orders for the Second Chance Shirt Fundraiser and the Nature Calendar Sale are both Sunday, December 3.

So many people admired Audubon’s “Go with the Flow” River Otter shirts and sweatshirts that ACNC is offering a second chance to purchase them, just in time for the holidays. The 2023 “In My Element” Day Camp shirt is also available in adult and youth sizes for your gift-giving needs.

The otter shirt is navy blue with cream lettering. “In My Element” is dark gray with light blue-green lettering. Designed in-house by ACNC Designer and Animal Care Specialist Kim Turner, both come in unisex t-shirts, women’s cut t-shirts, long-sleeved t-shirts, and hoodies. Youth sizes are available for the t-shirts and hoodies. With printing by Sideline Sports, your shirt purchase also supports local business.

Order shirts by going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through Programs and Events. You can pick up shirts on Friday, December 15 or Saturday, December 16 or have them shipped for an additional $8 per order.

Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club President Karen Christy coordinated with members to find a fitting photo for each month and created a stunning 2024 calendar that benefits ACNC. The calendar is full of beautiful photographs that feature natural settings from around the area.

Calendars are available by pre-order only for $20 and are printed locally by MW Graphics. Place your order by going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through Programs and Events. Pick them up on Friday, December 15 or Saturday, December 16. They can also be mailed for an extra $5 per order.
