Audubon Seeking Children’s Winter Clothes
The Audubon Community Nature Center is looking for children’s winter clothes.
One of the biggest challenges to getting children outside during the winter can be the annual cost for families of winter gear for their kids.
Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is seeking new or gently-used sweaters, winter coats, snow pants, boots, hats, gloves, and scarves for children in need.
Donations are being accepted through the end of the year at a drop-off box by the reception desk at Audubon during regular building hours, Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 1 to 4:30 p.m. on Sundays.
Clothes will be given to the Jamestown Community Learning Council (JCLC) for distribution to children in need. The JCLC’s mission is to strengthen the capacity of families to nurture, support, and provide for their children’s academic development, emotional growth, and physical well-being by establishing effective relationships between home and school. For more information visit JCLCPrograms.org.
Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. View the grounds, with its six miles of trails, and Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle, dawn to dusk daily, free of charge. The three-story Nature Center building houses interactive displays, a collection of live animals including the Hellbender exhibit, the 2021 Nature Photography Contest winners, and the Blue Heron Gift Shop. Nature Center members enjoy free building admission daily, and building admission is free every Sunday for non-Nature Center members as well.
The building will be closed on Christmas Eve and Day and New Year’s Day.
