Audubon Center & Sanctuary


Adult Day Camp, an intensive nature learning experience combined with fun and games, will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, September 20, 22, and 23 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

You will explore life under the water in ponds, see fall flowers and learn more about all the amazing plants and animals that share the more than 600-acre preserve.

The Nature Center is blessed with a crew of happy, talented naturalists who get excited about many different subjects. Each naturalist will choose topics they love teaching and create lessons around them that involve some indoor learning followed by hands-on experiences outside.

You will venture off the trails to see what is happening in some of the center’s unique areas. You might explore the Spatterdock Underworld and get a close-up look at the salamanders, snails and odd slugs that live on the property. Or you might even play with nets to catch insects on the wing and underwater to learn about some of the seldom noticed creatures that share our world.

Activities will be inside and outside, regardless of the weather. Be prepared to walk at least half a mile and back for programs.

The fee is $80 for the public and $60 for Friends of the Nature Center. Paid reservations are required by Friday, Sept. 16. Reservations can be made online or by calling (716) 569-2345 or stopping by the center during business hours.
