Learn to Make a Braided Wool Rug at Audubon on Friday, February 17

Jamestown, NY – By devoting part of a Friday afternoon to do some learning, you could be able to make your own braided wool rug.

On February 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. the Audubon Community Nature Center is presenting a workshop on Braided Wool Rug Techniques. Using reclaimed wool clothing, you can learn how to start, braid, add lengths, and lace to create braided wool rugs of varying sizes with a hands-on project.

You will learn all these techniques by creating a wool trivet. You will also receive a lacing needle and a braiding hook. The skills you learn can be used to make rugs of all sizes.

Little Explorers Learn about Maple Mysteries at Audubon, Saturday, February 11

Little Explorers Learn about Maple Mysteries at Audubon, Saturday, February 11

Jamestown, NY – “Maple Mysteries” is the topic at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday morning, February 11. The program is for children aged three to eight and their favorite grownups.

Maple trees are forest residents all year long, but humans take special interest in them come late winter.

While the trees prepare for the coming spring by pushing winter-stored sap through their trunks into branches, humans take a bit of that sap and turn it into maple syrup. Come and learn how this process happens, a little bit about the tree’s biology, and taste some maple syrup.

A hike will follow the lesson and then a snack and craft inside.

The 10 to 11:30 a.m. program runs rain or shine, and going outside is the most important part, so please come dressed for the weather.
