Hrs/Directions

Red Pine Forest

Five and a half miles of trails take you through forest and field and along the banks of ponds.

Sanctuary Hours
You are welcome to visit Liberty, our bald eagle, or to walk the trails from dawn until dusk daily at no charge (though donations are greatly appreciated). Sorry, pets are not allowed on the trails.

Liberty

The muscle damage in Liberty’s left wing is severe enough that she could not hunt for herself in the wild, though she sometimes makes short flights in her habitat. Photo by Dave Cooney.

The Nature Center Building contains a nature store, meeting space, live animals, and lots of hands-on exhibits that engage children while teaching adults.

Directions

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is located in Chautauqua County – New York’s western-most county – a stone’s throw from the Pennsylvania border. While the mailing address is 1600 Riverside Road, Jamestown NY, the site is actually located in the town of Kiantone, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York and Warren, Pennsylvania.

From I-90, take the Dunkirk-Fredonia exit and turn south onto NY Route 60.  Follow Route 60 until it ends at a traffic light just south of Jamestown NY. Turn right onto US Route 62 toward Warren PA. Turn left onto Riverside Road (about 3 miles from the intersection). The Center will be on the left about one-quarter mile from Route 62.

From I-86: NY Route 60 is Exit 12 (Jamestown) on I86 (Southern Tier Expressway). Turn south onto NY Route 60 and follow it until it ends at a traffic light just south of Jamestown, NY.  Turn right onto Route 62 south toward Warren, PA.  Turn left onto Riverside Road (about 3 miles from the traffic light intersection).  The Center will be on the left about one-quarter mile from Route 62.

From the south (Warren, PA): Follow US Route 62 north toward Jamestown. Just past the PA-NY state line, turn right onto Riverside Road. The center is one-quarter mile from Route 62 on the left.
