Audubon Center & Sanctuary
Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Nature Center’s “Monarchs & Margaritas” was such a hit last year that it’s back for a repeat appearance.
From 5-7 p.m. on Friday, August 28 at 1600 Riverside Road Jamestown, NY, you are invited to support the Monarch butterflies as they prepare for their migration to Mexico. Each admission includes two margaritas, appetizers, a crowd-free/child-free experience with the live butterflies, and a chance to win some great prizes.
Admission is $25 for those who reserve and pay by Wednesday, August 26, or $30 at the door. Register and pay by phone with a credit card at (716) 569-2345 or online by clicking “Monarchs & Margaritas”
Audubon will be a flurry of activity preparing for the next day’s Monarch Butterfly Festival as the staff creates in indoor butterfly garden full of beautiful flowers and Monarch butterflies. The Nature Center is once again opening up for an exclusive sneak peek Friday night.
Miley’s is providing the drinks and catering Mexican-themed appetizers with vegetarian options. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Monarchs need help. Throughout the last decade, their numbers have been decimated by habitat loss, deforestation, and drought. Through a fun game and the opportunity to view all stages of the Monarch life cycle up close, you will learn more about their plight and how you can help.
A hint for first-timers: Bring some spare change for extra drinks, to get ahead in the game, and to shop for some great butterfly-themed merchandise!
So come on down: bring your friends and enjoy the food and drinks as well as the butterflies and fun.
