Audubon Center & Sanctuary


The Audubon Center & Sanctuary has created the 2014 Bucket List Calendar of 12 Local Natural Events. (Note: A bucket list — if you’re not familiar with the term– is a list of things you want to experience before you “kick the bucket.”)

“Every month in the calendar has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see something amazing,” said Audubon Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome, who spearheaded the calendar’s creation.

For example, a photo of a bull elk bugling is paired with an opportunity to journey into Central Pennsylvania to see the elk.

The calendar is also full of natural events that happen every year, noting when the warbler migration is at its peak, when the tundra swans migrate through the area, and when to put out and pull in bird feeders. It is a great way to get more in tune with what is happening in the natural world and a fun way to try some new things.

The Bucket List Calendar can be viewed at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary.

November 30, 2013, is the deadline for ordering by calling (716) 569-2345 or visiting and clicking on “Natural History Calendar” in the sidebar under Fundraisers.

The cost is $20 or $18 for Friends of the Nature Center. Calendars can be picked up at the Center beginning December 9 or shipped anywhere in the United Stated for $5 per calendar.

Proceeds from calendar sales benefit Audubon’s environmental education programs, buildings and trails.

When you pick up your calendar, you can also check out the many holiday gift possibilities at Audubon’s Blue Heron Gift Shop, from field guides to insect nets to Conewango Blend birdseed specially formulated for our local feathered friends. Indoor folks will love the books, puzzles, shirts, and jewelry as well as the great selection of children’s books, toys and stocking stuffers.

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. Nature Center and Blue Heron Gift Shop hours are Monday and Saturday 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Sunday 1-4:30 p.m. Bald eagle viewing and trails are open dawn to dusk daily.
