Ancient Trees Field Trip

Date(s) - Saturday, Mar 15, 2014
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Mariner’s Pier Express Restaurant


As part of its Bucket List series, the Jamestown Audubon Center & Sanctuary is providing the opportunity to see some of the oldest trees in Chautauqua County during an ancient trees field trip. Audubon’s 2014 calendar pictures a year’s worth of amazing natural history opportunities you would want to experience before you “kick the bucket.”

Participants will meet for lunch at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 15 at Mariner’s Pier Express Restaurant, corner of Third and Spring Streets, Jamestown.  (Parking is free on Saturdays in downtown Jamestown.) Then proprietor Chris Merchant, who has a passion for ancient trees and old growth forests, will introduce the group to some towering trees.

The Audubon van will provide transportation for a program that will include a hike of one and a half to two hours at SUNY Fredonia’s College Lodge and another brief walk of about a half hour at Lily Dale. Return is planned for 4 p.m.

Cost for the day, including lunch, is $43 for the public or $34 for Friends of the Nature Center.

Reservations with payment are required by Monday, March 10. Call (716) 569-2345 or click through the Program Listing link to reserve online.

Participants are reminded to dress for the weather.
