Come Pull Garlic Mustard at Audubon on May Saturdays

Jamestown, NY – Garlic Mustard is an invasive plant from Asia that crowds out native wildflowers.

Volunteers have been pulling it for several years at Audubon Community Nature Center to reduce the spread of the plant.

On the remaining Saturdays in May there will be Garlic Mustard Pulling Parties from 9:30-11:30 a.m. followed by a pizza lunch.

Volunteer pull coordinator Tom Mooney will be hosting the pulling parties each week.

Call the Nature Center at (716) 569-2345 during business hours to register.

Come early – any time after 7 a.m. – on May 20 and you can observe bird banding, as ornithologists on the west side of Audubon’s property capture migrating and resident birds, fit them with identification bands, measure and weigh and then release them.

Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 or visit auduboncnc.org.

Hours for the Nature Center building, including the Blue Heron Gift Shop, are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and Sundays 1 to 4:30 p.m. The arboretum, gardens, picnic area, more than five miles of trails, and outdoor exhibit of Liberty are open dawn to dusk daily.

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.
