Audubon Community Nature Center


The Audubon Community Nature Center will hold a butterfly hunt from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 6 at the Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., Jamestown.

Learn how to capture and identify local butterflies as Audubon takes stock of what butterflies live on the property. Some butterfly nets will be provided. Visitors will have a short indoor introduction on how to use a butterfly net and identify butterflies. Most of the program will take place in a field that is a short walk from the Nature Center.

This program will be led by Craig Thompson, a retired naturalist who is currently very active with the National Audubon Society in New York.

Expect to walk half a mile to a mile altogether. Butterfly nets will be provided, but please bring one if you have them as the supply is limited.

The fee is $8 for the public; $6 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 3-15, and free for children 2 and younger.

Reservations are appreciated. Walk-ins are welcome.
