Kids’ Nature Art Exhibit Set At Audubon Community Nature Center
The public is invited to view “A Few of Our Favorite Things,” an exhibit of children’s nature art at Audubon Community Nature Center.
This past spring, most activities came to a halt as the community began to deal with COVID-19. Audubon sought to provide engaging activities that connected children with the natural world during that time.
Children received art kits including a canvas, paints, and brushes to create a piece based on the theme “your favorite thing about nature.” They were encouraged to use these materials and other natural items to showcase what inspires them about the natural world.
Twenty-one of their completed pieces were returned to ACNC for display in the first-floor multipurpose room.
The Nature Art Kits program was made possible in part by support from the United Arts Appeal of Chautauqua County Projects Pool Grants Program.
The first floor of the Nature Center building, including the Blue Heron Gift Shop, is open to the public Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Because not all of the building is accessible, admission is by donation only.
The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. The public can visit the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily. While practicing safe social distancing measures, visitors can walk the grounds and six miles of trails, and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle.
