Audubon Gift Shop 50% Off Sale Through Sunday, September 25 | Shopping & Services
Jamestown, NY – Whatever your gift needs – holidays, celebrations, remembrances -- it’s always a great time to shop at the Blue Heron Gift Shop in the Audubon Nature Center.
With 50% off all logo merchandise through Sunday, September 25, now is an especially good time to visit. Logo merchandise -- t-shirts, polo shirts, jackets, car window stickers, travel mugs, and even bandanas with maps of the Audubon property – will be half price, as long as supplies last.
“Since we’ll soon be doing inventory in the Gift Shop, we’re giving both ourselves and our customers a break by having a sale,” said President Ruth Lundin.
Lundin noted that the Blue Heron carries a wide range of items. Regular merchandise features puppets, puzzles, distinctive jewelry, notecards and stationery, handcrafted walking sticks, and locally-made soaps and jams and jellies.
“In addition to our great selection of nature-related books and field guides, we now have adult coloring books and nature journals, as well as those by the very popular artist Julie Zickefoose,” said Lundin. The Zickefoose choices include Baby Birds: An Artist Looks into the Nest, Natural Gardening for Birds, and The Blue Bird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds as well as notecards.
Nature Center hours through October are 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1 to 4:30 p.m. Sundays.
There is never an admission fee to visit the Blue Heron Gift Shop. Sundays are free admission days for the Nature Center, where visitors can enjoy displays of local reptiles and amphibians, plus tanks of fish. Other indoor exhibits include Frogs, Energy, and Pollination. There is also seating to observe a beautiful view of birds, chipmunks, squirrels and sometimes even deer at the Center’s birdfeeders.
Friends of the Nature Center receive a 10% discount on all Blue Heron Gift Shop regular price merchandise. (You can become a member by clicking on “Membership” at www.jamestownaudubon.org.)
Blue Heron Gift Shop sales support Audubon’s wide-ranging environmental education programs, physical facilities, education animals – including Liberty, the non-releasable Bald Eagle – and 600-acre wetland preserve.
