Audubon Community Nature Center


Audubon Community Nature Center for its First Friday Lunch Bunch will host “Yosemite and the John Muir Trail” from 11 a.m. to noon at the Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown.

David Lutsch and Yvonne Tovell did three days of hiking in Yosemite National Park in northern California, then seven days of backpacking on the John Muir Trail, named for the Scottish environmentalist. They walked 100 miles in 10 days and took pictures which they will share.

 David Lutsch is a former plastic mold maker and now full-time investor. Yvonne Tovell is a purchasing negotiator for a local biotech firm. Lutsch and Tovell travel widely and put a lot of miles on their hiking boots. She has been a backpacker and hiker for years, and he started about 10 years ago. He has been a kayaker and canoeist for many years, and she has taken to those “like a duck to water.” They both love traveling and the outdoors.

A BYO brown bag lunch and conversation follows the program, with coffee and tea provided.

The cost of the event is $8 per person and $6 for Nature Center members. Reservations are not required.
