Audubon Center & Sanctuary


Come celebrate Earth Day by improving the habitat and making grounds of the Jamestown Audubon Center & Sanctuary more beautiful at the volunteer cleanup from 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, April 19 at the Jamestown Audubon Center & Sanctuary, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY and Warren, PA.

Reservations are necessary to plan for food. Volunteers are asked to make reservations by Wednesday, April 16 online, through e-mail, or calling calling 569-2345.

Volunteers are needed to make the buildings and grounds more beautiful and the sanctuary more visitor-friendly. Volunteers will choose a work crew to pull non-native plants, plant native seeds and shrubs, spruce up the gardens, pick up trash as part of Audubon’s roadside cleanup, trail blaze, and possibly more.

The schedule is:

  •     8:30 – 9 a.m. – Registration
  •     9 a.m. – Select work crew and learn about the importance of what you are doing
  •     9:30 a.m.- noon – Work, work, work (and have fun!)
  •     Noon- 1 p.m. – Lunch and prizes

Folks of every age will work rain or shine and have a blast doing it. After all the hard work, lunch will be provided to all volunteers.

Participants are encouraged to wear clothes that can get dirty, dress for the weather, and bring work gloves if they have them.
