Audubon Center & Sanctuary


The First Friday Lunch Bunch will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 3 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Dan Anderson, retired Jamestown Community College biology professor, will present “Invasive Species: Why the Concern?”

You can learn what is meant by the term “invasive species,” how they affect the food web, and what makes them such a growing problem. Anderson will share some surprising new findings about plants and animals now being found in our region that can be a real headache.

Anderson is the winner of a Chapter Service Award from the New York Forest Owners Association, a program that provides private forest owners with information and
encouragement to manage their forest holdings wisely. He has a long history of activity in forestry as a landowner and New York Master Forest Owner volunteer.

Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a BYO brown bag lunch. The fee for attending is $8 for the public or $6 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are not required.
