Community Foundation Grants Make Audubon Success Possible

Community Foundation Grants Make Audubon Success Possible

Jamestown, NY – “It’s pretty simple,” said Jennifer Schlick, program director for Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC). “Outdoor programs are our most effective ways to connect children to nature.”

But, Schlick added, securing the funding to provide those programs isn’t always simple. “That’s why we’re so grateful to the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation (CRCF) for supporting our Schoolyard, Walking Field Trip, and Discovery Walk programs through their Thomas H. Brown Fund.”

Schlick noted that, “With the guidance of a trained naturalist, the children are always surprised at the wonders of nature right in their own schoolyard.” When possible, Audubon naturalists lead students on more extensive field trips to natural areas within walking distance of their school.

A grand Western New York tradition like no other, the Christmas in the Country Holiday Artisan Market will celebrate its 32nd season when it returns to the Hamburg Fairgrounds Nov. 3-6.

“Lessons Learned” is Topic of Audubon Photo Club Meeting

“Lessons Learned” is Topic of Audubon Photo Club Meeting

Jamestown, NY – At the next Jamestown Audubon Nature Photography Club meeting on Thursday, October 13, Don Armstrong will present the topic: “How What I Learned From Camera Club Projects Advanced My Photography.”  He will show before and after images and explain the transformations.

“Sunrise/Sunset” and “Hidden Compositions” are the topics for the image review that begins the meeting. “Sunrise/Sunset” is about seeing the character of sunset/sunrise light not only in the sun direction but that golden light on objects behind you. “Hidden” would be something interesting in a photo that wasn’t the subject or reason you took the photo.  It may be quite a crop from the original -- like a hide-and-seek thing – and a good opportunity to look over old shots.
