Audubon Taking Orders for 2013 Calendars, Selling Audubon Bucks
Jamestown, NY – If your holiday shopping list includes some impossible-to-buy-for folks, the Audubon Center and Sanctuary has some great choices for you.
Following last year’s inaugural success, Audubon has created a unique 2013 natural history calendar that combines beautiful nature images from local photographers with a natural history timeline for each month.
The calendar helps you learn more about what is happening in nature and when to go looking and listening for it: When should you listen for owls at night? What time of year can you find certain wildflowers? When is the peak migration for birds? When do bats migrate? Wait, bats migrate?!?
The photographers who contributed their stunning work include Audubon staff and volunteers, Audubon Nature Photography Club and community members as well as professionals.
Another great hostess gift or stocking stuffer possibility: Audubon Bucks.
Audubon Bucks can be used like cash to pay for programs at Jamestown Audubon, to shop in the Nature Store or to pay for a Friends of the Nature Center membership, new or renewal.
A package of Audubon Bucks contains five $5 gift certificates plus one free pass for building or festival admission. Purchase the packet at Audubon and you pay only $25. Order online at http://jamestownaudubon.weebly.com/audubon-bucks.html and pay just a little more – $28 – and the Bucks will be mailed right to you.
Calendars sell for $18 — $16 for Friends of the Nature Center – and must be pre-ordered by December 1. They can be picked up at the Nature Center on or after December 15 or shipped for $4/calendar.
To order your calendar, stop by or call Audubon at (716) 569-2345, or use the online form. Click on the link on Audubon’s home page at http://jamestownaudubon.org/ for all the details.
