Jamestown, NY – Beavers, swallows and warblers in downtown Jamestown?
On Saturday evening, August 16, you can meet an Audubon Center & Sanctuary naturalist to walk the Riverwalk and discover the plants and animals that call Jamestown “home.”
You will be amazed at what lives in the city. Despite concrete, pavement and 30,000 people, nature still has a foothold. Residents have seen beavers gathering sticks and ducks nesting, and heard warblers singing along the Riverwalk.
The Riverwalk starts behind Brooklyn Square -- at the northwest corner of South Main and Harrison Streets -- and runs along the Chadakoin River to Panzarella Point behind the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities. Walking with Audubon Naturalist Corinne Fredrickson, you will appreciate one of Jamestown’s most unique locations by observing the plants, birds, insects, reptiles, and mammals that are using or living along the Chadakoin River.
