Jamestown, NY – After last year’s successful event, Audubon Community Nature Center is again offering a special experience on Father’s Day, June 18, 2017.

That Sunday afternoon you can build a birdfeeder in Audubon’s woodshop. The program is open to all, but this is a great opportunity for dads and granddads to be together with their family.

Feeding and watching birds is an activity that different generations can all enjoy. Any time between 2 and 4 p.m. you can join naturalists and volunteers in the workshop to build a birdfeeder that you can take home to attract birds to your yard.

Designed and prepared by Audubon volunteers, the parts will be cut out and ready to assemble with nails and a hammer. Materials, tools, and instructions will be given, and adults are expected to help younger children.

Then stop by the Window on Wildlife in the Nature Center to watch the birds at Audubon’s feeders.

The cost is $10 per birdfeeder.

With Significant Electrical Rate Increase on the Horizon, More Consumers are Switching to Solar

With Significant Electrical Rate Increase on the Horizon, More Consumers are Switching to Solar

It’s not a joke, and not at all funny. National Grid is asking the Public Service Commission to raise its residential electricity delivery prices beginning April 1, 2018.

If the rate hike is approved, the average National Grid customer would see their monthly bill increase by $11.23 a month! The company says it needs the money to make infrastructure investments.

National Grid is also proposing increases in monthly electricity bills for commercial customers — as high as $10.01 per month.
