Audubon Center & Sanctuary
Thanksgiving with the Birds will be held at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 21 at Audubon Center & Sanctuary, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown.
At 11:30, folks will gather around the outdoor soup kettle for which you can bring a small container of your favorite broth-based soup to add to the mystery brew.
The Nature Center provides the roasted turkeys and beverages for the indoor buffet dinner that begins about 12:30. Participants are asked to bring a side dish (dressing, vegetables, potatoes, salad or dessert) and their own table service, including a mug for soup.
During her presentation that will begin around 1:30, Jennifer Miller (winner of the competition for the 2015-2016 Federal Duck Stamp) will talk about her background as an artist and the ways (some unusual) she has woven together her love for art, nature, and conservation issues. Born and raised in rural Western New York, she is a wildlife and fantasy artist whose work focuses on birds. She has created many fantasy paintings and illustrations for publication, including several novel covers.
Participants are reminded to dress for the weather if you would like to be outside with the soup pot or enjoy the sanctuary before or after dinner.
Bring $6 per person, a dish to pass, a broth-based soup for the soup pot (optional), and your own table service.
Because seating is limited, reservations are required by Monday, Nov. 16 – call 569-2345 during business hours or use the on-line form (scroll down to the bottom of the page). When you call to reserve, please say what dish you will bring to pass.
