Volunteers and staff of the Audubon Nature Center will offer special opportunities  on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6 and 7 at Panama Rocks Scenic Park, 11 Rock Hill Rd., Panama.

Panama Rocks hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m., with the last admission at 4 p.m.

General admission is $7.50; children ages 6-12, $5, and ages 5 and under, free. A portion of admission will be donated by Panama Rocks to the Audubon Nature Center. Additional donations to the Nature Center will be gratefully accepted.

Visitors will be able to explore the scenic half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rocks that form crevices, passageways and caves hidden in an ancient forest.

Retired Jamestown Community College professors Tom Erlandson and Dan Anderson will be stationed along the trails to teach you about the rocks and trees. Visitors can also explore displays and artifacts from the Nature Center and possibly meet one or more of the Nature Center’s live animal ambassadors.

Live birds of prey – like owls and hawks – will be presented on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. by Wild Spirit Education and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. by Mark Baker of Eagle Dream Rehabilitation.

Davis & Eng will perform live music from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

While supplies last, you can build a birdfeeder for $10/kit.
