Nature Center Offering Two Snow Camp Days This Winter

Nature Center Offering Two Snow Camp Days This Winter

Jamestown, NY – To accommodate the different school schedules in Warren and Chautauqua Counties, the Audubon Nature Center is presenting two days of Snow Camp this winter. 

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, February 15, and Friday, February 26, kids from ages four to 18 can experience the fun of summer Day Camp with a winter twist.

Time will be spent outside, and there will also be inside camp games and songs.

Teenagers might get the chance to try cross country skis or maybe snowshoes (if there is snow), play some outdoor games, perhaps geocache, and get a roaring fire going in the backyard.

Campers are asked to dress for the weather and pack a complete change of clothes, winter gear, a snack, and a lunch.

“Direct the Viewer’s Eye” is Subject of Audubon Photo Club Meeting

“Direct the Viewer’s Eye” is Subject of Audubon Photo Club Meeting

Jamestown, NY – “Direct the Viewer’s Eye” is the subject at the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting.

On Thursday, February 11, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. Cathy Abers-Kimball will present the topic: Using composition to direct the viewer’s eye. Many ways to improve your photos will be explored.

An illustrated discussion on 22 common landscape mistakes will reinforce the above ideas in the 15-minute tech portion of the meeting.

“Perspective from Repeating Patterns” and “Cropping” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. Repeating themes within the frame such as shapes, colors or lines strengthen a picture while echoing the viewer’s life's experiences. Cropping is an essential tool for focusing a viewer’s attention and learning to see better.

A social time follows the program.
