Turtles Are Audubon Creature Feature

On Wednesday, Jan. 27, the Audubon Community Nature Center will have its first monthly after-school Creature Feature, highlighting one or more of Audubon’s education animals. Turtles will be January’s featured creature.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is presenting a new program to introduce children and families to their critters.

On the last Wednesday of the month, one or two of Audubon’s animals will be spotlighted in Audubon’s after-school Creature Feature. Turtles will be the stars on Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m.

Animals can teach people a lot, and Creature Feature is an opportunity to learn what makes them special.

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, Jan. 26, 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.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, and Warren, Pa. 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.

The public is welcome to visit 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.
