Time to Order Bird Seed from the Nature Center | Environment
Jamestown, NY – Putting out a bird feeder and keeping it filled brightens the lives of our feathered friends as well as those who feed them. Watching these beautiful creatures from the comfort of our homes can bring optimism to our days and introduce young people to the natural world.
Monday, February 1, is the deadline for ordering bird seed and related treats from the Audubon Nature Center’s Winter Birdseed Fund Raiser.
You will have a variety of seeds to choose from, with the most popular being the Nature Center’s exclusively formulated Conewango Blend, designed to attract local birds. Specialty seeds, cakes, and other selections are also available.
The Nature Center finds the best birdseed mixes at affordable prices, and all proceeds benefit its programs, exhibits, buildings and grounds. Friends of the Nature Center receive a 10% discount on all purchases.
Your many choices are on the order form that can be obtained by clicking on “Bird Seed” at www.jamestownaudubon.org or calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours.
Orders can be submitted online, phoned, mailed, or faxed for pick-up on Saturday, February 13, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. You won’t even have to get out of your car, as volunteers will load the fresh seed, direct from the supplier, right into your trunk.
