‘Flower Power’ for kids in Jamestown

Date(s) - Saturday, May 13, 2017

Audubon Community Nature Center


“Flower Power” is the theme for Audubon Community Nature Center’s next Little Explorers.

You and the three-to-eight-year-old child or children in your life can learn about flowers and their adaptations at this program from 10-11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 13 at the Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., Jamestown.

The world is filled with flowers in May, so you will hunt for some of them and learn, all while enjoying the outdoors. A brief lesson indoors prepares you for a hike. A snack and, time allowing, a craft follow the walk.

Plants have creative ways to reproduce, the most showy being flowers. You will investigate different flowers and how their shapes, colors, and scents help the parent plant make seeds. Flowers come in a variety of forms, many to attract a pollinator that will help them exchange pollen with another flower to make seeds. Learn about different flower-animal partnerships, how flowers attract pollinators, and some special features that make them successful.

The program runs rain or shine, and going outdoors is the most important part, so go dressed for the weather.

The fee is $8 for adults and $6 for Nature Center members and children. Reservations are required by Thursday, May 11, and can be made online or by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours.
