The Audubon staff has created a unique 2012 natural history calendar. This beautiful publication has fun facts about nature on each page, with weekly updates on things to look for in nature such as when flowers bloom, birds migrate, bats migrate, when to find tundra swans, how to find insects in winter such as snow fleas, and much more.
Dave Cooney, Sarah Hatfield, Terry Lebaron, Jennifer Schlick, and Jeff Tome – all Audubon staff or volunteers – have provided the amazing photography.
The calendar can be viewed at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary.
A fund raiser for Audubon, the calendars cost $20 and must be pre-ordered by December 3. They will be available to be picked up the following week.
Money raised from calendar sales benefits the education program at the Audubon Center and Sanctuary.
When you pick up your calendar, you can also check out the many gift possibilities at Audubon’s Nature Store, from field guides to insect nets to Conewango Blend birdseed specially formulated for our local feathered friends. Indoor folks will love the puzzles, shirts, jewelry and Stedman Corners bird-friendly coffee. There is also a great selection of children’s books, toys and stocking stuffers.
The Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, off Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. Hours are Monday and Saturday 10-4:30, Sunday 1-4:30. Bald eagle viewing and trails for hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are open dawn to dusk.
