The Great Lakes Experience Festival will be held from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, June 21, at Memorial Park on Lakeshore Drive in Dunkirk to learn about the environment, ecology and recreational opportunities in the Great Lakes region. There will be family entertainment, environmental exhibitors, food vendors and more.
Naturalists and volunteers from the Audubon Center & Sanctuary will have live animals and natural artifacts for visitors to learn about wetlands habitat in the Great Lakes area. Artifacts will include furs, skulls, shells and nests. Visitors can also find information about the programs, events and volunteer opportunities that Audubon has to offer.
The festival is being coordinated by The Great Lakes Experience, a not-for- profit support organization for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. It provides an array of information about the habitat, science, recreation, and tourism opportunities afforded by the Great Lakes.
