Jamestown, NY – Just a few minutes from either Jamestown or Warren, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary’s extended holiday hours make it a wonderful destination for a family outing.

On Wednesday morning, December 26, a behind-the-scenes tour will show visitors how Audubon cares for Liberty, its non-releasable bald eagle.
Thursday and Saturday mornings, December 27 and 29, will feature walks with staff naturalists along Audubon’s trails to learn the surprising amount of outdoor nature activity that goes on during the winter.
Christmas with the Critters on Friday morning, December 28 is a time to get “up close and personal” with Audubon’s education animals. The Nature Center building is home to a variety of live reptiles and amphibians, including a garter snake, American toad, leopard frog, and spring peeper. Tanks of fish and a variety of turtles entertain and educate.
All these special events begin at 10 a.m.
