Workshop: Creating natural play areas in your yard

Date(s) - Saturday, Mar 19, 2016
10:00 am - 11:30 am

Audubon Center & Sanctuary


Learn how to create natural play areas in your yard using plantings, cuttings and on-hand materials in a workshop from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 19 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

The class will be led by Jeff Tome, senior naturalist and lead staff person on the continued development of the playscape built at the Nature Center. He has transformed his yard, which was mostly lawn, into a series of play areas where his children love to play.

Most of the workshop time will be inside, with a short walk outdoors to look at the Nature Center’s play area.

The fee is $12 for the public or $9 for Friends of the Nature Center and children ages 9-15.

Paid reservations are required by Thursday, March 17. Register online or call (716) 569-2345 during business hours.
