Nature walk at Audubon is set for Saturday
Taking a walk with an Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) educator is an opportunity to discover some of the seasonal changes that are taking place in the plants, animals, and landscape.
Audubon’s next Saturday morning outdoor nature walk is set for Saturday, March 6, from 9 to 10 a.m.
While donations are welcome, the event is free.
Audubon officials said they were thrilled with the increase this past year of people safely enjoying the natural world as they flocked to both new and familiar outdoor environments. Monthly guided nature walks are designed to encourage the appreciation of nature to continue, with another planned for the first Saturday in April.
Be sure to dress according to the weather for this outdoor activity that will be canceled if the weather is too severe.
Face coverings are required for all participants ages 3 and up for outdoor programs during which participants cannot maintain six feet of distance between family groups. Please have a face covering available.
Because space is limited, reservations are required: Call the Nature Center during open hours at 569-2345 or go to AudubonCNC.org and click through “Upcoming Programs.”
Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. 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.
Area residents can 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. For more information, call 569-2345, visit AudubonCNC.org, or find Audubon Community Nature Center on Facebook.
