Take a hike with an Audubon naturalist

Early spring is a wonderful time to be to be outside and see how active nature is as the world wakes up from winter.

The naturalists at the Audubon Center & Sanctuary are looking forward to leading walks to share some of these wonders.

You are invited to meet in the lobby of the Center at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday morning, April 2, 3 or 4, to participate in a hike on Audubon’s trails led by one of the staff naturalists.

This opportunity is open to all ages. Come prepared to be surprised at how much you will learn.

You are welcome to bring a lunch and stay to enjoy a self-guided tour of Audubon’s exhibits after the hike.

The $7 fee – $5 for Friends of the Nature Center – includes admission to the building where you can enjoy the many exhibits of animals, energy, the new pollination exhibit, and more.

Reservations are not required. Participants are reminded to dress for the weather.

Audubon education programs are made possible in part through funding from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, the Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, the Holmberg Foundation, the Hultquist Foundation, and the Johnson Foundation.

Located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary has over five miles of beautifully maintained trails on a 600-acre wetland preserve. Its three-story building contains a nature store and a collection of live fish, reptiles, and amphibians. One of the most visited exhibits is Liberty, a non-releasable bald eagle.
