Audubon Exclusives

An Audubon Exclusive is a special service or event offered as a fund-raiser by ACNC staff, volunteers, members, and friends. Consider supporting Audubon by participating in one of these opportunities. New fundraising events and programs are added regularly. Please check back often so you don’t miss out!


Staff, volunteers, members and friends offer their services in exchange for a donation to ACNC.

Garden Consultation

Looking to spruce up your garden this spring, but don’t know where to start? ACNC Executive Director Leigh Rovegno would be happy to help!

This exclusive is up to 3 hours of consultation which includes garden plan, plant recommendations (types and quantities), and suggested steps including a timeline.

Limited number available for purchase. Reserve by February 28.
$200 per consultation

Raised Bed Starter

Looking to try a raised bed garden this spring, but don’t know where to start? Reg and Louise Boutwell, dedicated volunteers in the ACNC Kitchen Garden, would be happy to help!

The Boutwells will construct one raised bed, maximum size 4×12 feet, and help you get it ready to plant. The purchaser must provide top soil. The Boutwells will provide compost, lime, and peat moss.

Five beds are available at $230 each. Purchase one, or all five (if still available). Purchase by February 29, 2020.

Coin Appraisal

Have your coins appraised by the long-time president of the Jamestown Coin Club. Learn the value of the change you’ve been saving for years, the collection you started in childhood, or one that has been in your family. You will receive up to two hours of review time, at a mutually convenient time and place, with the possible option of selling your coins if you are interested.
