Audubon and Watershed Conservancy Announce Collaboration

Audubon and Watershed Conservancy Announce Collaboration

Jamestown, NY – The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy is pleased to announce the expansion of its sanctuaries to include the Bentley Sanctuary, a unique wildlife preserve off of Fluvanna Avenue Extension near Fluvanna that is known for its ephemeral spring wildflowers and winding trails.

The Sanctuary was the first property acquired by Jamestown Audubon Society when 40 acres were donated by Gustavus Bentley in December, 1960. It was a favorite birding site for the famous naturalist and Jamestown native Roger Tory Peterson.  In 1933 Peterson mapped 50 species of nesting birds on the property.  Bentley also surveyed the site between 1960 and 1965 and published a booklet listing the plant species he found.  Audubon Community Nature Center has continued to hold annual Mother’s Day Wildflower Walks at Bentley, but for many years it has been underutilized beyond this one event.

Community Foundation Grants Make Audubon Success Possible

Community Foundation Grants Make Audubon Success Possible

Jamestown, NY – “It’s pretty simple,” said Jennifer Schlick, program director for Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC). “Outdoor programs are our most effective ways to connect children to nature.”

But, Schlick added, securing the funding to provide those programs isn’t always simple. “That’s why we’re so grateful to the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation (CRCF) for supporting our Schoolyard, Walking Field Trip, and Discovery Walk programs through their Thomas H. Brown Fund.”

Schlick noted that, “With the guidance of a trained naturalist, the children are always surprised at the wonders of nature right in their own schoolyard.” When possible, Audubon naturalists lead students on more extensive field trips to natural areas within walking distance of their school.
