Jamestown, N.Y. – Last summer cut paper artist Wendy Bale created a design for shirts that were a fundraiser for Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC). The variety of colors and styles all featured Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle, with the banner “For the Love of Liberty.”
For holiday giving, Bale has updated her design with the addition of “Audubon Community Nature Center/Jamestown, New York” and selected a wider range of fabrics and colors to choose from.
ACNC Executive Director Leigh Rovegno is excited about this opportunity. “All of us at Audubon were thrilled both to have these great shirts and for the success of the fundraiser,” she said. “Knowing how much fun it is to give — and receive! — gifts with a local connection, we’re delighted they are available again.”
For a limited time — only through Saturday, November 30 — anyone can order a Liberty tee directly at Bonfire.com/for-the-love-of-liberty-ACNC. When the sale closes, the shirts will all be printed, and orders will start shipping December 9.
With seven sizes and more than a dozen colors to choose from, you are sure to find the right one for your gift giving — or as a holiday treat for yourself.
Orders can be shipped directly to a gift recipient.
All net proceeds from shirt sales go directly to support Audubon Community Nature Center’s mission of connecting people to nature.
In celebration of Small Business Saturday, on November 30 Audubon will be having a store-wide 10% off sale in the Blue Heron Gift Shop, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. That same day, just down the road at Sandhill Designs, 149 Frissell Road, area artists Wendy Bale, Bill Bale, Debra Eck, Karen Glosser, and Kimberly Turner welcome the public to their release of new small artworks at a one-day POP-UP Gallery Event, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
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.
