Audubon Community Nature Center


The Audubon Community Nature Center will host The Lost Words – Otter and Bramble from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 21 at the Community Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown.

The cost is $8 for adults, $6 for Community Nature Center members and $6 for children ages 9 to 15. Paid reservations are required by March 19 and can be made online.

Naming things has a power all its own, as Robert McFarlane discovered when certain words went missing from a popular children’s dictionary. Many nature words were among those lost from children’s vocabulary. In partnership with Jackie Morris, he wrote a book of spells to conjure back 20 of these lost words. This program will feature Otter and Bramble.

Based on the book, participants will hear the spell, speak the spell and through a variety of activities conjure back these two natural elements to take their rightful place in both culture and heart.
