Jamestown, N.Y. – Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) has added another special event to its Audubon Exclusives of distinctive opportunities and unusual experiences created to help fund ACNC programs.
At Baldies and Brews on Wednesday, May 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m., you can learn more about our country’s national bird and enjoy some local flavors.
Baldies and Brews is an opportunity to discover things you never knew about Bald Eagles, visit a Bald Eagle nest as close as the law allows, and take a behind-the-scenes tour of Audubon’s Bald Eagle, Liberty.
Participants meet at the Nature Center. The adults-only event opens with hors d’oeuvres and locally brewed beer and wine, followed by a tour to the nest while learning more about eagles.
ACNC Senior Naturalist Jeff Tome is the guide to the eagles’ nest, beginning with a short drive and then a short hike on the property, where participants will observe the nest with a spotting scope.
For this adventure, you will want to dress for the weather and wear sturdy, comfortable shoes.
There are just 10 openings for this experience. The donation to participate is $40.
Reservations are required by Sunday, May 20, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or online through the Programs page at auduboncnc.org.
