First Sunday Story Time at Audubon is June 4

Audubon Community Nature Center storyteller Claire Certo holds the attention of her young listener as she reads a nature story at Audubon’s First Sunday Story Time. The next Story Time for 2 – 8 year olds and their adults is Sunday, June 4, 12:30 – 1 p.m. Both Story Time and Sunday building admission are free.

On the first Sunday of each month, area residents can bring their 2-8 year old(s) to Audubon Community Nature Center for a free nature-based story time.

Children’s books are powerful tools to connect children to nature and establish a strong foundation for their educational journey.

Join storyteller Claire Certo next on Sunday, June 4, for a half-hour story time. 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 the 12:30 to 1 p.m. story time. The program is free and so is Sunday admission. Come for stories and stay to explore the indoor Nature Play Area, live animals, and exhibits. Then go outside to use the outdoor Nature Play Area and visit Soren, the Red-tailed Hawk, and Cricket, the American Kestrel. Participation is limited to 15. Reservations for Story Time are requested by Saturday, June 3. To reserve a 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.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. Visit the nearly 600-acre nature preserve, check in on the live birds of prey, and hike the more than five miles of trails dawn until dusk daily for free.

The three-story Nature Center building houses interactive displays, a collection of live animals including the Hellbender exhibit, and the Blue Heron Gift Shop. Visitors are welcome Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sundays, 1 to 4:30 p.m. Nature Center members and SNAP/EBT cardholders have free building admission daily. Building admission is also free every Sunday for non-Nature Center members.
