Audubon Community Nature Center’s 2017 Calendar Celebrates 60 Years! | Environment
Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) has again produced the perfect holiday gift: A 2017 Natural History Calendar, full of local pictures and lore.
In celebration of the ACNC’s 60th anniversary year, the calendar features some success stories in nature from the last 60 years – like nesting Ospreys, Otters, and Fishers.
It also takes a look at some less successful stories – like Water Chestnut, and Rusty Blackbird declines of up to 99%.
Featuring a curious raccoon, the cover highlights Audubon’s new name, logo, and slogan. Along with photos of the past, there is natural history for each month.
Audubon Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome, who spearheads the calendar’s creation, noted that it was printed locally at MW Graphics and uses photos primarily by local and regional photographers. Proceeds support the ACNC’s educational programs.
Cost is $20 or $18 for Friends of the Nature Center. Shipping anywhere in the United Stated is $5 per calendar.
Calendars can be seen and purchased at the Audubon Nature Center’s Blue Heron Gift Shop. You can also order by calling (716) 569-2345 or going online to www.auduboncnc.org/shop.
While you are at the Nature Center, you can explore the many holiday gift possibilities at the Blue Heron Gift Shop: great books for children and adults, puzzles, shirts, jewelry, toys and stocking stuffers, Conewango Blend birdseed specially formulated for our local feathered friends, and more.
