You are invited to create a little touch of green by making a terrarium, a mini-garden that can brighten up your indoor space — and your spirits — for the coming winter.
You have five opportunities to make your tiny garden at Audubon Community Nature Center: on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 5:30-6:15 p.m. or 6:45-7:30 p.m., and Saturday, November 7, 2020, 10-10:45 a.m., 11:15 a.m.-12 p.m., or 12:30-1:15 p.m.
Terrariums are easy to make, but the possibilities of layout and decoration are endless.
Directions, examples, and basic building materials, including containers, soil, and plants, are provided at the Terrarium Make-and-Takes. You are encouraged to bring additional decorations or supplies to aid in making your creation.
All ages are welcome, though small children may need assistance.
Audubon’s COVID-19 safety precautions require face coverings for all visitors ages 3 and up for indoor programs. Face coverings are also required outdoors when visitors cannot maintain six feet of distance between family groups.
The program fee is $10 for adults, $7.50 for Nature Center members and children 3-15, and free for those two and under.
Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, November 3, for the Wednesday sessions and by Thursday, November 5, for the Saturday sessions. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking on “Upcoming Programs.”
Walk-ins may be accepted if there is room; call for availability after the deadlines.
ACNC 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, 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.
