Audubon Community Nature Center


The Audubon Community Nature Center will hold an event called “The Lost Words: Heron and Weasel” from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., Jamestown.

Naming things has a power all its own, as Robert McFarlane discovered when certain words were found missing from the Oxford Junior English Dictionary. Many nature words were among those removed. In partnership with Jackie Morris, he wrote a book of spells to conjure back 20 of these lost words.

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.

The cost is $8 for the public and $6 for Nature Center members and children ages 9-15.

Limited enrollment. Paid reservations required by Thursday, Feb. 13 online or at (716) 569-2345.
