BERNARDSVILLE, April 11, 2011 — Treat Mom to a Day with Mother Earth on Saturday May 7! Surprise her with a “Mother Nature’s Silent Auction” gift – place your bids for tickets to McCarter, NJ Shakespeare, or Mayo Theatre – or an overnight stay for 2 at Dolce Hotel… maybe she’d prefer a basket from C’est Cheese or Enjou Chocolat – just to mention a few of the many, many wonderful gifts available for you to win… while supporting the Sanctuary at the same time!
Find amazing creatures along a Nature Treasure Hunt, peruse gorgeous wildlife photography in the Wayrick Wildlife Gallery and meet the artist herself! And don’t forget to visit the Young Audubon Children’s Art Show featuring the works of talented 4th Graders from area schools! Young Audubon work will be on display just outside the Sanctuary Nature Store until June 1st.
And speaking of the Nature Store, every May Day guest - not just Moms - will receive a Special May Day/Mother’s Day 20% off Discount to apply to virtually everything (except optics) in the beautiful new store!
Relax and enjoy live outdoor performances by Eco-Man and the talented musicians of the NJ Folk Project while the kids get their faces painted and are busy with nature crafts at The Children’s Tent – or sit in on talks by very special guest speakers, including every Jersey birder’s favorite and renowned author, Pete Dunne; Giselle Smisko will talk about Chimney Swifts, why they are on the decline, and how they can be helped. History buffs will be treated to a fascinating and entertaining Hike through History with Gordon T. Ward – enjoy nature while learning about the critical role the Sanctuary grounds played in the American Revolution. And for Moms who aren’t easily grossed-out, Rizzo’s Reptiles will be on hand with a wild posse of snakes, reptiles and amphibians – and even a baby alligator!
