Last Chance to Order Audubon 2014 “Bucket List” Calendars

Jamestown, NY – “We have long-time Audubon participants who were delightfully surprised at the opportunities they learned about in the preview printing of our 2014 Bucket List Calendar!”

That’s how Audubon Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome described the enthusiastic response to the new calendar. He also noted that Sunday, December 1, is the deadline for ordering the 2014 Bucket List Calendar of 12 Local Natural Events.

A bucket list -- if you’re not familiar with the term-- is a list of things you want to experience before you “kick the bucket.”

“We decided to take a different approach for next year,” Tome said. “Every month in the calendar has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see something amazing.”

Tome explained that if the photo for the month is of a bull elk bugling, Audubon will be offering a program so that you can journey into Central Pennsylvania and see the elk. If the photo is of a snipe, Audubon will present a snipe hunt that month. And there will be an outing to see 40,000 purple martins flying into a roost.

The calendar is also full of natural events that happen every year, noting when the warbler migration is at its peak, when the tundra swans migrate through the area, and when to put out and pull in bird feeders. It is a great way to get more in tune with what is happening in the natural world and a fun way to try some new things. 

Here’s your opportunity to have a year’s worth of truly awesome natural history experiences -- or simply find the perfect gift for that impossible-to-buy-for person on your holiday shopping list.

Cost is $20 or $18 for Friends of the Nature Center. Calendars can be picked up at the Center beginning December 9 or shipped anywhere in the United States for $5 per calendar. Proceeds from calendar sales benefit Audubon’s environmental education programs, buildings and trails. 

Orders can be placed through Sunday, December 1, 2013, by calling (716) 569-2345 or visiting www.jamestownaudubon.org and clicking on “Natural History Calendar” in the sidebar under Fundraisers.

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. Hours for the Nature Center and Blue Heron Gift Shop – with a wonderful selection of holiday gift possibilities -- are Monday and Saturday 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Sunday 1-4:30 p.m. Bald eagle viewing and trails are open dawn to dusk daily.
