Invitations Going Out for Audubon’s Falling for Nature Dinner & Auction

Jamestown, NY – After two very successful years at the Conewango Club in Warren, the Audubon Center & Sanctuary is moving their annual Falling for Nature Dinner & Auction to the Gateway Train Station for 2014.

“We have been thrilled with the participation by Warren folks, and we hope everyone will be excited about this year’s venue,” said Audubon President Ruth Lundin. “We are also emphasizing  distinctive ‘experiences’ as auction items,” she added, “so there will be something for everyone!”

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Gateway Train Station is located in downtown Jamestown adjacent to the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena. Following years of renovations, this stunning space is now open for tourist visits and special event bookings.

What You May Not Know About the Affidavit of Support

What You May Not Know About the Affidavit of Support

 

Any person seeking to immigrate to the United States pursuant to a Form I-130, Petition for Alien Relative, must have a financial sponsor who signs and submits a Form I-864, Affidavit of Support to the Department of Homeland Security. With this Affidavit of Support, the sponsor agrees to financially support the intending immigrant at 125 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to ensure that the intending immigrant will not become reliant on any means-tested public benefit. What many people do not realize is the extreme durability of this contract, which lasts through divorce and even bankruptcy.

Leaf Printing Workshop at Audubon

Leaf Printing Workshop at Audubon

Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Center & Sanctuary has the perfect opportunity for you to get your creative juices going and make some beautiful items to keep for yourself or give as gifts.

From 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, September 27, 2014, Audubon is presenting a Leaf Printing Workshop where participants will make two leaf monoprints, one on paper and one on a scarf.

After a brief demonstration by retired fine arts teacher Sue Yauchzy of what is meant by “leaf monoprint,” the class will head outside with naturalist Jennifer Schlick to Audubon’s Ted Grisez Arboretum, a living museum containing over 60 native trees. You will learn a bit about the Audubon grounds and the trees in this gigantic garden while you collect a few fallen leaves for your project.

Back inside, Yauchzy takes over again to lead you through the process of making two projects – one on paper, and one on a scarf made from bamboo fabric that drapes beautifully.
