"Friends Treat Friends" is the theme of Jamestown Audubon's upcoming fundraiser at Bob Evans Restaurant.
On Monday, Sept. 8, 15 percent of purchases will be donated to Audubon when diners present a flyer when paying for any dine-in or carry-out meal from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Flyers for the Jamestown restaurant at I-86 Exit 12, 2798 N. Main St., can be picked up at Audubon or downloaded and printed by clicking through "Friends Treat Friends" at www.jamestownaudubon.org.
Those who take part in an upcoming fundraiser for the Jamestown Audubon Center and Sanctuary will support the care of the Audubon Center & Sanctuary’s education animals — like the snapping turtle pictured above — by bringing a flyer and eating a meal at Bob Evans in Jamestown on Monday, Sept. 8.
Those coming at meal times can meet Audubon staff and be entered into a drawing for a free Friends of the Nature Center membership.
Friends of the Nature Center receive free admission to the Nature Center building, have their names listed on Audubon's website, get discount pricing on Audubon programs and receive 10 percent off all their purchases in the Blue Heron Gift Shop as well as building rentals.
Friend of the Nature Center memberships support Audubon's wide-ranging environmental education programs, physical facilities, education animals - including Liberty, the non-releasable Bald Eagle - and 600-acre wetland preserve.
The Audubon Center and Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, a quarter-mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown and Warren. The building, with its collection of live animals and interactive exhibits, is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4:30 p.m. Sundays. The grounds, including trails, gardens, picnic tables, arboretum, and Liberty, are open from dawn until dusk daily.
