Audubon’s First Friday, March 3: Can Dumpster Discards Help Animals?

Audubon’s First Friday, March 3: Can Dumpster Discards Help Animals?

Jamestown, NY – At Audubon Community Nature Center’s next First Friday Lunch Bunch presenter Peter Tucker will pose the question: “Can Constructed Habitats Help?”

At the 11 a.m. event on March 3, you can learn if humans can make homes that aid threatened and/or beneficial insects and animals.

Tucker is doing research to identify the most pressing environmental needs and determine where constructed habitat support can be beneficial in Western New York. He will share his results and seek input for project implementation.

Once a species, or a few species, are identified, the project will shift focus to finding local materials that can be used to construct the habitats.

Land Conservancy to Host Talk About the Salamanders’ Big Night

Land Conservancy to Host Talk About the Salamanders’ Big Night

The Western New York Land Conservancy is hosting a special talk with Twan Leenders, president of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute and expert herpetologist, at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23 at Grand Island Town Hall. 

Each spring, salamanders have a “big night” where they all — that’s right, all of them at once — come out of their forest homes and migrate back to the seasonal woodland pools where they were born. They breed at these same pools. The public is invited to come find out more about these quiet but amazing amphibians and how we can help with their survival.
