Audubon Center To Celebrate Presidents Day

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is celebrating Presidents Day by offering a whole day of activities.

The event is open to children in kindergarten through eighth grades and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18.

Children will divide into age groups and do a variety of outdoor and indoor activities with experienced counselors from Audubon’s summer day camps. Participants should bring winter clothes, snacks, and a lunch that does not need refrigeration. The cost for the day for the first child is $30 or $25 for Friends of the Nature Center. Siblings receive a $5 discount.

Reservations are required by Thursday by calling 569-2345, emailing jamestownaudubon@gmail.com or clicking on the link at jamestownaudubon.org. Older youth interested in serving as assistants in the younger groups can call the center at 569-2345 for more information.

Audubon education programs are made possible in part through funding from the Johnson Foundation, the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, the Hultquist Foundation and the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund.

Located at 1600 Riverside Road, a quarter-mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary has more than five miles of maintained trails on a 600-acre wetland preserve. Its three-story building contains a nature store and a collection of live fish, reptiles and amphibians. One of the most visited exhibits is Liberty, a non-releasable bald eagle.
