Jamestown, NY – Two of the region’s premier nature showcases are joining forces to present two days of delightful outdoor fun and learning.

Visitors will be able to explore the scenic half-mile long ridge of 60-foot high rocks that form crevices, passageways, and caves hidden in an ancient forest.

Retired Jamestown Community College professors Tom Erlandson and Dan Anderson will be stationed along the trails to teach you about the rocks and trees. Visitors can also explore displays and artifacts from the Nature Center and possibly meet one or more of the Nature Center’s live animal ambassadors.

Learn How You Can Help Save Monarch Butterflies

Learn How You Can Help Save Monarch Butterflies

Jamestown, NY – It is a sad fact that Monarch Butterflies populations are declining drastically.

On Friday morning, August 5, in a coffee shop-like setting at the Audubon Nature Center, you can learn about this unique insect and how to help increase its population by raising caterpillars.

Last year, there were 150% more Monarchs on their wintering ground than there were the year before.  Audubon naturalist Katie Finch, who will lead the 9:15-11:15 a.m. workshop, hopes some of those butterflies came from the Nature Center.

Audubon has been raising large numbers of Monarch Butterflies for 10 years and releasing them at the Monarch Butterfly Festival in August. This year’s Festival will be on Saturday, August 27.
