Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is offering a free guided Nature Walk on Saturday, September 4, 8:30–9:30 a.m.

You can discover what is happening in the natural world in September on this hike with an Audubon educator or trail guide volunteer.

The natural world is constantly changing through the year. Every month you can walk with an Audubon educator to discover some of the seasonal changes in the plants, animals, and landscape. Learn more about the world around us through the lens of wonder and curiosity and be inspired to continue learning in your own outdoor adventures.

Be sure to dress for the weather.

ACNC does not require face coverings outdoors for programs and events with fewer than 50 people. Face coverings are required for all (despite vaccination status) inside the Nature Center building.

Participation is limited to 15, and donations are encouraged.

Reservations are requested by Thursday, September 2. To reserve your space, call the Nature Center during open hours at (716) 569-2345 or go to AudubonCNC.org and click through “Upcoming Programs.”

Walk-ins are accepted if there is room.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa. You can enjoy the grounds, with its six miles of trails, and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle, dawn to dusk daily, free of charge.

The three-story Nature Center building houses interactive displays, a collection of live animals including the new Hellbender exhibit, the Blue Heron Gift Shop, and winning photographs from the 2020 Nature Photography Contest. Visitors are welcome Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and Sundays, 1 – 4:30 p.m. Nature Center members enjoy free building admission daily, and building admission is free every Sunday for non-Nature Center members.
