Saturday September 23 is Audubon birdseed order deadline

A flock of Blue Jays are pictured eating bird seed. Saturday, Sept. 23, is the deadline for ordering bird seed and related treats from Audubon Community Nature Center’s Fall Birdseed Sale.

The Audubon Community Nature Center offers birdseed at a discounted rate during sales twice a year, providing savings for you and support for nature education.

Orders are due by Saturday, Sept. 23, for Audubon’s Fall Birdseed Sale, which gives area residents an opportunity to save and support Audubon at the same time.

Non-Nature Center members receive 10% off ACNC’s Conewango Blend birdseed retail prices; Nature Center members receive an additional 10% off (20% total).

Conewango Blend, unique to ACNC, was developed to attract favorite and common fall species of the region such as chickadees, cardinals and titmice. There are also suet cakes for woodpeckers and a mix to attract finches. To place an order, call 716-569-2345 during business hours, stop by the Nature Center, or use the printable order form or order online at AudubonCNC.org/shop. Orders can be picked up Saturday, Oct. 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers will load the fresh seed, direct from the supplier. Call 716-569-2345 ahead of time if unable to pick up orders Oct. 14.
