Snakes are the Audubon creature feature Wednesday

Audubon Community Nature Center’s second monthly Creature Feature is Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m.

The program introduces children and families to Audubon’s education animals.

Snakes are the stars on the last Wednesday in February.

Animals can teach people a lot, and this is an opportunity to learn what makes them special. Come early to explore inside the nature center building or save time at the end of the program to adventure outside.

Audubon’s COVID-19 safety precautions require face coverings for all visitors ages 3 and up for indoor programs.

The program fee is $4 for adults, $3 for Nature Center members and children 3-15, and free for those two and under.

Enrollment is limited, and paid reservations are required by Tuesday, Feb. 23, by calling 569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking on “Register for Upcoming Programs.”

Walk-ins may be accepted if there is room; call for availability after the deadline.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. The first floor of the Nature Center building, including the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the 2020 Nature Photography Contest winning photographs, is open Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Because not all of the building is accessible, admission is by donation only.

Visitors can to view the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily. While practicing safe social distancing measures, hike, snowshoe, or cross country ski the six miles of trails and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle.
