Audubon To Host Holiday Decoration Event Dec. 3
The public is invited to celebrate the winter season by using nature in its holiday decor or gift-giving.
Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is offering Decorating with Greens to make a small wreath, table decoration, or swag with beautiful natural greens. Workshop times are 10:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3.
Create something of one’s own design and take home a unique homemade holiday decoration. Examples of decorations will be provided. Directions, cut greens and other materials will be on hand to make one-of-a-kind pieces suited to one’s particular taste.
Those attending are encouraged to bring additional decorations or supplies such as small wreath frames, ribbon, wire and pruners to aid in making their creation. Twelve-inch wire wreath frames are available for an additional $3 at the nature center.
All ages are welcome, though small children will need assistance. The program fee is $16 for adults, $12 for Nature Center members and children 3-15, and free for those two and under.
Paid reservations are required by Friday, Dec. 2, by calling 716-569-2345 during business hours or going to AudubonCNC.org and clicking through “Programs and Events.” Walk-ins may be accepted if there is room. Call for availability after the deadline at 716-569-2345.
