Little Explorers Learn about Plant Skeletons at Audubon, Saturday,

January 14

Jamestown, NY - Children aged three to eight and their favorite grownups will learn about plants in the winter at Audubon Community Nature Center's next Little Explorers.

On Saturday morning, January 14, the topic will be "Plant Skeletons."

Some plants completely die back for the winter. Other leave stalks or seedpods, and still more stay as is, perhaps losing leaves but keeping their structure.

Participants will learn how different plants get through winter and how they are formed on the inside. After going for a walk to collect and investigate these plant skeletons, there will be a snack and craft inside.

The 10 to 11:30 a.m. program runs rain or shine, and going outside is the most important part, so please come dressed for the weather.

Little Explorers is an opportunity to learn about a new nature topic on the second Saturday of each month. Some time is spent both inside and out, and a snack and a craft are always included.

The fee is $8/person, $6 for Friends of the Nature Center. Reservations are required by Thursday, January 12, and can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 or clicking through Attend a Program/Programs and Workshops under Plan Your Visit at

Audubon Community Nature Center is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania. To learn more, call (716) 569-2345 or visit

Audubon Community Nature Center builds and nurtures connections between people and nature by providing positive outdoor experiences, opportunities to learn about and understand the natural world, and knowledge to act in environmentally responsible ways.

Are you interested in becoming more fit physically, mentally and spiritually? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk with Jesus? Come join us on a journey of a lifetime as we study mind, body and spiritual health with "Christ Walk: A 40 Day Spiritual Fitness Program."

The Christ Walk program allows us to walk the miles of various routes in the Bible over a period of forty days. Some of the routes that can be traveled range from the Bethlehem to Jerusalem route (a short 5 miles) to the route from Egypt to the Promised Land (375 miles). The program is open to all no matter your age, health, or fitness level. Everyone can benefit from the program - children and adults. Participants can walk alone or form teams to select a route and track the miles toward their goal. Each week we will meet to record our mileage and engage in reflective exercises aimed at helping us grow toward a Christ-centered life.

The program will kick off with an introductory session on Thursday, January 12th at 5:30 PM in Bailey Hall. If you want to begin the New Year by improving your physical, mental and spiritual health, then come join us as we journey together with Jesus.
