Audubon Has Patch Opportunities for Scouts and Others

Jamestown, NY – Jennifer Schlick, Program Director at Audubon Community Nature Center recently sent information about earning Fun Patches to area Scout Councils and leaders.

“But really,” Schlick explained, “we’re happy to have any interested child earn a patch at one of four special events over the next few months.”

To earn these brightly colored patches, a child just needs to pick up and complete a list of requirements any time during the hours the event is held. He or she can then purchase a patch for $3 (in addition to the regular admission), on a first-come, first-served basis.

Events where patches can be earned are:

  • Terrific Turtles:  Saturday, May 13, 1-4 p.m. Meet turtles, touch turtles, and learn some of the facts and folklore surrounding these reptiles. Details at auduboncnc.org.
  • Audubon After Dark: Friday, June 23, 9-11 p.m. An owl prowl, bat chat, moth light, and Synchronous Firefly hike are all happening with a campfire and s’mores set up in the center of it all. Online reservations open through June 21. Walk-ins welcome. Group rates available pre-sale only by calling or stopping in during business hours. Details at auduboncnc.org.
  • Wild America Nature Festival: Saturday and Sunday, July 29 and 30, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Panama Rocks in Panama, New York. Pick up requirements and purchase patches at Audubon booth. Arts and crafts show, food, educational talks and workshops. Details at wildamericafest.com
