Celebrate Christmas for the  Critters at Audubon
Jamestown, NY – Have you ever wondered how the animals at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary celebrate Christmas? This year they are going to have their own party – and you’re invited! On December 29, at 10:00 am, you’ll find a tree set up, and the animals will have holiday decorations in their habitats. During the party, Audubon staff will bring some of the animals out to meet you. You can learn about them, touch them, and wish them a very happy holiday! You can also go behind the scenes to visit Liberty the Bald Eagle.

Your admission is your wrapped gift that you can put under the tree. What do you get a toad for Christmas? It turns out there are lots of things that the animals need. Some of the items from the full Wish List at jamestownaudubon.org are: white paper towels, kitchen garbage bags, bleach, white distilled vinegar, rubber gloves, hand soap – plus lots more!

After reading a story, making a craft, and having some cookies, you’ll gather around the tree and help open the animals’ gifts. If you can’t think of anything to bring, didn’t have time, or just dropped in, the party admission is $5 for members and $7 for non-members. If you want to drop off a gift but can’t come to the party, that’s fine, too. Make sure you put your name and address on the tag so the animals can send you a thank you card. Critter gifts benefit Audubon’s educational reptiles and amphibians, the fish, Liberty the Bald Eagle, and the outdoor wildlife. The Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, off Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. For more information, call (716) 569-2345 or visit www.jamestownaudubon.org.
