On Wednesday, May 19, 2021, Warren Gives is an opportunity to support Audubon Community Nature Center and to have donations matched.

Area residents are invited to donate to help meet ACNC’s 2021 goal of raising $6,000 through Warren Gives. This year’s fundraising efforts will support a Warren County-based program series provided by ACNC’s trained Nature Educators.

Programs will be designed for a wide variety of ages and will feature the natural wonders of Warren County from wildflowers to waterfalls. For more information on these incredible nature-based Warren County programs visit AudubonCNC.org and click on “Upcoming Programs.”

Those who donate online from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on May 19 can have the donation matched up to $2,000 by a long-time ACNC supporter. In addition, the Community Foundation of Warren County will match 15% of all donations made to ACNC for one day only. Go to WarrenGives.org and search for “Audubon” under the Organization List.

Donors can also send a check made out to The Community Foundation of Warren County with “Audubon” written in the memo line. All checks must be received by the Community Foundation by noon on Monday, May 17, in order to be counted in the Community Foundation’s match. Mail checks to Community Foundation of Warren County, 310 Second Avenue, Warren, PA, 16365.

With Audubon less than two miles from the Warren County line, a large portion of staff, members, volunteers, and board members are from there. ACNC normally provides programming in all its elementary schools and offers opportunities to explore Warren County’s wonders through field trips and programming. In addition, Warren businesses support Audubon, and Audubon supports them as well by making sure to buy local and through collaborating together on community events.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. While practicing safe social distancing measures, visit six miles of trails on the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily.

The Nature Center building includes the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the winning photographs from the 2020 Nature Photography Contest. Visitors are welcome Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.
