Jeff Tome has taken thousands of pictures in the more than 20 years that he has been a nature educator at Audubon Community Nature Center.

At Audubon’s First Friday Lunch Bunch on December 6, Tome will take you on a photographic adventure through “An Audubon Year” to see sights that few visitors have seen, from River Otter families and blue frogs to purple orchids and eagle nests.

With camera in hand, Tome has prowled the trails, looking at all the plants, animals, and other things that dwell there. The now senior nature educator will demonstrate that Audubon’s 570 acres contain far more than most people suspect.

Get a new look at all that Audubon’s trails have to offer, and bring a brown bag lunch to share afterward and enjoy the company of the presenter and fellow participants.

Tome’s program was originally scheduled for January’s First Friday. A scheduling conflict moved the Audubon Year program to December, and the originally scheduled Hellbender program is moved to January.

The fee for attending First Friday is $8 or $6 for Nature Center members.

Walk-ins are welcome. Registrations are accepted through Thursday, December 5, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going online to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking “Current Schedule.”
