Audubon events set for week ahead

Night & Day

Night & Day — The Buffalo Audubon Society will be hosting a Crepuscular Hike on at 6 p.m. Friday at its North Tonawanda Preserve (Klydel Wetlands) located on Raymond Street.

Take a hike through the preserve to see what animals are active during twilight hours. Many animals take advantage of these hours to feed because they know that predators are less likely to be active.

Donations accepted. For more information call Buffalo Audubon at (585) 457-3228.

The Buffalo Audubon Society is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that promotes appreciation and enjoyment of the natural world.
