The Buffalo Audubon Society will be hosting a summer family fun festival that will create memories for a lifetime! Beaver Meadow’s Wild Summer will take place at the Beaver Meadow Audubon Center on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2017 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Visitors will explore Beaver Meadow through playing in nature. Everyone will enjoy paddling the pond in a canoe or catching insects in the meadow. Craft a crown made with natural materials, build a fairy house, toad abode or life-size fort in the woods. Explore a pop-up Nature Play Area with tree blocks, a log obstacle course, tree climbing, and other fun surprises!  Everyone can learn new archery skills with the Wyoming County Federation. Live birds of prey demonstrations with American Hawkeye will be a highlight of the festival at 1 and 3 p.m.

A giant mud play zone will be a focus point for the event as well! Visitors are encouraged to bring a towel and change of clothes if they plan to get dirty. Hoses will be available to clean up.

“We are excited to continue this annual summer event at Beaver Meadow. We are encouraging children and families to create their own adventure and enjoy a hands-on day in the woods!” said Loren Smith, Buffalo Audubon Society Executive Director.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase throughout the event from the Central House Food Truck.

Admission to Beaver Meadow’s Wild Summer is $8 per person; $30 for a family of 4; ages 2 and under free.
