Audubon Community Nature Center is presenting a new program to introduce kids and families to their critters.

On the last Wednesday of the month, one or two of Audubon’s animals will be spotlighted in their after-school Creature Feature. Turtles will be the stars on January 27, 3:30-4:15 p.m.

Animals can teach us a lot, and this is an opportunity to learn what makes them special. Come early to explore inside the nature center building or save time at the end of the program to adventure outside.

Audubon’s COVID-19 safety precautions require face coverings for all visitors ages 3 and up for indoor programs.

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

Enrollment is limited, and paid reservations are required by Tuesday, January 26. You can register by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking on “Register for Upcoming Programs.”

Walk-ins may be accepted if there is room; call for availability after the deadline.
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 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 hike, snowshoe, or cross country ski the six miles of trails and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle.

To learn more about Audubon and its many programs, call (716) 569-2345, visit AudubonCNC.org, or find Audubon Community Nature Center on Facebook.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
