Audubon Community Nature Center’s next guided Saturday morning Nature Walks are on June 26 and July 3.

The June 26 walk is 9–10 a.m.

The July 3 walk is 8:30–9:30 a.m, as will be the ones in August and September.

Taking a walk with an educator is an opportunity to discover some of the seasonal changes that are taking place in the plants, animals, and landscape.

Be sure to dress for the weather. Face coverings are required for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals for indoor and outdoor Audubon programs.

While the event is free, donations are appreciated.

Participation is limited to 15. Reservations are requested by the Thursday before each walk. To reserve your space, call the Nature Center during open hours at (716) 569-2345 or go to and click through “Upcoming Programs.”

Walk-ins will be 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. While practicing safe social distancing measures, you can enjoy the six miles of trails on the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily.

The Nature Center building includes the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the winning photographs from the 2020 Nature Photography Contest. Visitors are welcome Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is by donation only.
