Audubon Community Nature Center


Audubon Community Nature Center will host Thanksgiving with the Birds potluck from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 at Community Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown.

Celebrating Audubon’s oldest tradition, bring the family for a potluck dinner, presentation, and fun outdoor activities.

Back in March of 2017, Peter Tucker presented at the First Friday Lunch Bunch his plan to investigate how constructed habitats can help wildlife. He was at the beginning of a sabbatical during which he planned to research which animals could most benefit and then design projects that would use local materials to construct artful nest boxes and other structures.

Tucker will be the speaker at this event and will give an update on the results of his project.

Tucker is an Associate Professor of Art at Fredonia State University of New York. He works within the field of social practice, a form of contemporary art that involves community collaboration.

New this year, the November nature play day will run simultaneously with this event. Parents and other caregivers are encouraged to bring the kids and drop them off at the nature play area (or stay with them).

The cost is $6 plus a pot to pass. There will be an optional soup pot contribution.

Reservations can be made by calling 569-2345 or going online. Walk-ins will also be welcome.
