Monarchs & Margaritas

Audubon Center & Sanctuary


Audubon Nature Center will hold Monarchs & Margaritas, an adults-only event, from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26, at the Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY and Warren, PA.

The Nature Center will be prepared for the next day’s Monarch Butterfly Festival with an indoor butterfly garden full of beautiful flowers and Monarch butterflies. You can enjoy an exclusive sneak peek of the festival and have special fun while you 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. Miley’s is providing the drinks and catering south-of-the-border-themed appetizers with vegetarian options. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

Monarchs need help. During 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 and to shop for some great butterfly-themed merchandise.

Reserve early; admission is limited. The cost is $25 for those who reserve and pay by Wednesday, Aug. 26, or $30 at the door. Register online or  pay by phone with a credit card at (716) 569-2345.
