You can celebrate the winter season by making a fresh holiday decoration with natural greens for your own home or as a special gift.
Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is offering three Decorating with Greens opportunities to make a small wreath, table decoration, or swag with beautiful natural greens.
Workshop times are Saturday, December 4, 2021, 10-11:30 a.m., 12:30-2 p.m., and 2:30-4 p.m.
You can create something of your own design and take home a unique holiday decoration that you made yourself. Examples of decorations will inspire you.
Directions, cut greens, and other materials will be on hand to make one-of-a-kind decorations suited to your particular taste. You are encouraged to bring additional decorations or supplies such as small wreath frames, ribbon, wire, pruners, and holiday décor to aid in making your creation.
All ages are welcome, though small children will need assistance.
Audubon’s COVID-19 safety precautions require face coverings for all visitors ages 3 and up for indoor programs.
The program fee is $10 for adults, $7.50 for Nature Center members and children 3-15, and free for those two and under.
Twelve-inch wire wreath frames are available for an additional $3.
Paid reservations are required by Friday, December 3. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking on “Upcoming Programs.”
