Jamestown, NY – If you’re looking for a way to chase away the winter blahs, the Audubon Community Nature Center has just what you need.
On Saturday, February 4, Audubon will present the 2017 Snowflake Sustainable Living Festival, a family-friendly event celebrating nature, living sustainably, and fun.
With its recent emphasis on learning to live lighter on the planet, this event continues to serve the community and is now in its 35th year.
You can experience hands-on activities that can be done at home to help have a smaller impact on the environment. These include making butter and soap, wool spinning, knitting, leather working, wheat grinding, drilling maple taps and syrup making. You can even make a wooden nest box or bird feeder.
You can get up close with owls and hawks when Wild Spirit Education present an owls program at 11 a.m., a meet and greet at noon, and a birds of prey program at 1 p.m.
