Animals can teach us a lot.

You can visit with Audubon Community Nature Center animals and learn what makes them special.

Reptiles are the stars in this month’s Creature Feature on Wednesday, April 28, 3:30 – 4:15 p.m.

Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates covered in special skin made up of scales, bony plates, or a combination of both. They include crocodiles, snakes, lizards, turtles, and tortoises.

This family-friendly program on the last Wednesday of the month introduces kids and families to Audubon’s education animals.

The program will be indoors where wearing a face covering is required for ages 3 and up.

Come early to explore inside the nature center building or save time at the end of the program to adventure outside.

The fee is $4 for adults, $3 for Nature Center members and children 3 – 15, and free for those two and under.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants, and paid reservations are required by Monday, April 26. Register by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through “Upcoming Programs.”

Walk-ins may be accepted if there is room; call for availability after
the deadline.
