Audubon Center To Hold Nature Walks

Naturalists at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary will lead nature walks next week.

Those interester are invited to meet in the lobby of the center at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday to participate in a hike on Audubon’s trails led by one of the staff naturalists. The opportunity is open to all ages. Those participating are welcome to bring a lunch and stay to enjoy a self-guided tour of Audubon’s exhibits after the hike.

The cost is $7, or $5 for Friends of the Nature Center, and includes admission to the building, which includes exhibits of animals, energy and the new pollination exhibit.

Reservations are not required. Participants are reminded to dress for the weather.

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

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.
