Audubon Snow Camp Set For Presidents’ Day, Feb. 19

Like summer Day Camp with a winter twist, Snow Camp at Audubon Community Nature Center is a day of activities for children on Presidents’ Day, Monday, Feb. 19.

Presidents’ Day is an opportunity for winter play and outdoor exploration at the Audubon Community Nature Center.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, February 19, children between the ages 5 and 14 can have fun at Audubon’s Snow Camp while they learn about winter wildlife, plants and weather.

Exploring in the winter is magical and provides a window into a world many rarely experience. During the day of free exploration, guided discovery and play, children learn more about the world around them, how it responds to winter and how they fit into the season. Naturalists will lead children in groups through the grounds and inside the Nature Center.

The cost for the day is $30 or $25 for members. Siblings receive a $5 discount.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Thursday, Feb. 15. To register, call 569-2345 during business hours or click through Plan Your Visit/Attend a Program at auduboncnc.org.

Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation and Lenna Foundation.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. The Nature Center building is home to the Blue Heron Gift Shop and three floors of interactive exhibits, including live animals that inform and engage visitors of all ages. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Saturday and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Sundays. Bald Eagle viewing and trails for snowshoeing and cross country skiing are open dawn to dusk every day.
