This is Jamestown Audubon’s first experience offering an intergenerational Elderhostel program. The theme is insects, but participants will also take general nature walks and birding walks. They will kayak in two different locations and take a ride on Chautauqua Lake on the Summer Wind.
I got to spend Sunday evening and a good chunk of Monday with our small but pleasant group. Here are some highlights:
Sarah came along and calmed a Water Snake for a Close Encounter and some snake education:
We also saw a Garter Snake, Leopard Frogs, and Grasshoppers along the way, along with lots of funky fungi and strange parasitic wildflowers.
So, welcome Elderhostel participants. I hope you have a great week. More pictures from the Elderhostel experience can be found here and will be updated throughout the week: FLICKR PIX
