Little Explorers Learn About Bears at Audubon Saturday, January 9


Bears are one of the biggest mammals around, so where do they go during the winter?
You and the three to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life can learn about bears at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers, Saturday, January 9, 2021, 10-11:30 a.m.
The Black Bear is the bear found in this area. What makes it similar or different from other kinds of bears?
These shy, playful animals have a varied diet and some amazing adaptations to help them survive. Come to Audubon to learn more about Black Bear diets, behaviors, and adaptations throughout the seasons.
After an indoor lesson, Little Explorers and their adults will head outside to look for evidence of bears at Audubon. Then it is time to think like a Black Bear and find a winter snack a bear would want to eat.
A snack is provided after the walk and a craft is offered if there is time.
Be sure to dress for the weather.
Audubon’s COVID-19 safety precautions require face coverings for all visitors ages 3 and up for indoor programs. Face coverings are also required when you cannot maintain physical distance outdoors, so plan to have one available.
The fee for the program is $8 for adults, $6 for children and Nature Center members.
Make reservations by Thursday, January 7, 2021, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or by going to [2] and clicking on “Register for a Program.”
The Little Explorers series is sponsored by Univera Healthcare. Little Explorers is presented on the second Saturday of every month, 10-11:30 a.m.
Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa.
The first floor of the Nature Center building, including the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the 2020 Nature Photography Contest winning photographs, is open to the public Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Because not all of the building is accessible, admission is by donation only.
You are welcome to visit the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily. While practicing safe social distancing measures, you can enjoy the grounds and six miles of trails, and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle.
