Beaver Meadow’s Wild Summer

Discover Your Inner Wild Child!


The Buffalo Audubon Society will be hosting a summer family fun festival that’s sure to be a blast for everyone! Beaver Meadow’s Wild Summer will take place at the Beaver Meadow Audubon Center on Saturday, August 3rd from 11am – 4pm.

Visitors will explore Beaver Meadow through playing in nature! Everyone will enjoy paddling the pond in a canoe or catching insects in the meadow. You can craft a crown made with wildflowers and grasses, build a fairy house or toad abode, use small nets to explore pond life and cheer on your favorite turtle in our turtle race! The Buffalo Astronomical Association will be at the observatory for solar viewing and come and create your own work of art using materials from nature.

A giant mud play zone will be the focal 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 Melissa Fratello, Buffalo Audubon Society Executive Director.

Snacks and beverages will be for sale in the Nature Center. We encourage folks to pack a picnic lunch and spend the afternoon!

Admission to Beaver Meadow’s Wild Summer is $8 per person; $30 for a family of 4; ages 2 and under free. For more information, please call 585-457-3228, visit: on facebook @BuffaloAudubonSociety. Beaver Meadow Audubon Center is located at 1610 Welch Road in North Java, NY.
