The Audubon Community Nature Center’s next monthly First Sunday Storytime is February 5 from 12:30 to 1 p.m.

With ACNC storyteller Claire Certo in the lead, children will go on literary adventures with animals, through habitats and seasons, and discover new things with every page. Doors open at 12:20 p.m. for children between the ages of ages 2 and 8 and their adults for this free, nature-based story time. The building fully opens at 1 p.m. Participants are welcome to stay afterward and explore the Nature Center building.

Both the program and Sunday admission are free. Come for story time and stay to explore the indoor Nature Play Area, live animals, and exhibits. Then go outside to enjoy the outdoor Nature Play Area and visit Soren the Red-tailed Hawk.

Participation is limited to 15.

Although this is a free event, reservations are requested by Saturday, February 5, 2023. To reserve your space, call the Nature Center during open hours at 716-569-2345 or go to AudubonCNC.org and click through “Programs and Events.”

Walk-ins are welcome if there is room.
