The connection begins with you.
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.
Many of the events, programs and workshops at ACNC contain an outdoor component. Audubon believes that experiencing the natural world first hand is key in developing a connection to the planet. Check out what is happening at Audubon.
Nature affects us. We affect nature. Many of ACNC’s programs help to understand the components of natural ecosystems and how people fit into and impact the systems. Learn more about scheduling educational programs through Audubon.
Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something. Learn how your actions impact the planet and find simple ways to increase your positive impacts through volunteering. Find your place at Audubon Community Nature Center.
Take a walk, forage for materials, make and create. It is good for your mind, for your hands, for your soul. Audubon can help, with some of the make-and-take workshops coming up over the winter.
Many of us have the ability to purchase the good winter gear. From that position, it is easy to say “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing” to motivate people to recreate outdoors in more than just dry, warm, and comfortable weather. But what if you don’t have or can’t afford the proper gear to keep you warm and dry in winter?
You can run off some Thanksgiving excess at Audubon Community Nature Center’s (ACNC) Virtual Wild Turkey Trot Challenge.
Audubon is setting up a marked 5k course, but you can run the Trot anywhere at any time from the Saturday before Thanksgiving, November 21, until the Sunday after, November 29.
