Sponsor Opportunity for Audubon Butterfly Festival

Sponsor Opportunity for Audubon Butterfly Festival

Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is inviting additional sponsors for its Monarch Butterfly Festival on Saturday, August 30, 2014.

This event gives visitors a hands-on experience with live Monarch Butterflies flying around an indoor garden created just for this day. The day is full of great activities, from holding a caterpillar to catching a butterfly outside or eating Mexican food in honor of the Monarch Butterflies’ migration to Mexico each winter. Visitors will also learn how they can help a butterfly whose population is at record lows.

“We’re delighted to have a number of sponsors already on board,” said Audubon Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome. “We’re looking for others to join the Frewsburger Pizza Shop, Heritage Senior Living, Lena’s Pizza, Phoenix Metal, King’s Heating and Sheet Metal, Matt’s Nuisance Animal Control, Mike’s Nursery and Native Roots Landscaping.”
