Try “Diving into Ducks” at Audubon Workshop in Dunkirk October 18

Jamestown, NY – An amazing number of ducks migrate through Dunkirk.

You are invited to learn about and observe them at Audubon Community Nature Center’s “Diving into Ducks,” 2-3:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 18.

Dunkirk Harbor is known for the large number and diversity of ducks that migrate through each year. Birders have migrated to the pier and parks along the shore to see birds that are rarely found beyond the edges of Lake Erie.

The program will start inside at the Fredonia Technology Incubator where you will learn some common ducks and how to identify them. Afterward, participants will wander up to the Dunkirk Pier, just a block away, to see what ducks are around.

Instructor Jeff Tome is a senior naturalist at the Audubon Community Nature Center. He has been visiting Dunkirk and other spots on Lake Erie for years to watch the duck migration.

The Fredonia Technology Incubator is located at 214 Central Avenue, Dunkirk, NY 14048. Parking is in back.

Cost is $16, $12 for Nature Center members and children ages 9-15.

Class size is limited. Paid reservations are required by Tuesday, October 17, 2107, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online at the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.

This program is supported in part through a grant from the Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation.

This grant was made possible through generous community-minded donors who have established community benefit funds at the NCCF. Founded in 1986, the NCCF is committed to improving the community through the promotion of local philanthropy, strategic grant making and community leadership. The organization has distributed over 9.5 million dollars in the form of grants and scholarships within the community. Truly community in nature, the NCCF is an organization created by and for the people of northern Chautauqua County. For more information, visit nccfoundation.org or call (716) 366-4892.

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.
