The last admission is at 4 p.m.

Visitors will be able to explore the scenic half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rocks that form crevices, passageways, and caves hidden in an ancient forest.

Retired Jamestown Community College biology professors Tom Erlandson and Dan Anderson will lead natural history walks focused on their respective specialties, rocks and trees.

Visitors can also explore displays and artifacts from the Nature Center, possibly meet one or more of the Nature Center’s live animal ambassadors, and make a nature craft.

From 2-4 p.m. on Saturday Steel Rails, the duo of Dave Moller and Gary Cuckler, will present live music featuring songs that cover the southern, country and rock genres.

Also on Saturday, for an additional fee, you can take an Amish hay ride.

On Sunday, there will be live music by Bill Moran. Co-director of the Greystone Nature Preserve in Brocton, New York, Moran is a member of the Harbour Knights band.


General admission is $7.50, children ages 6-12 are $5, children ages 5 & under are free, seniors ages 65+, veterans, military, and students ages 25 & under with valid ID are $6. A portion of your admission will be donated by Panama Rocks to the Nature Center. Additional donations to the Nature Center will be gratefully accepted.

If you become a Nature Center member or renew your membership on one of those days, you will get 14 months for the price of 12. You can also enter a drawing for a free membership and other prizes.
