Give your feathered friends a mid-winter treat and stock up on their favorite birdseed at a special price.
Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) provides birdseed at a discounted rate at sales twice a year.
Friday, January 29, 2021, is the deadline for ordering birdseed and related treats from ACNC’s Winter Birdseed Sale, providing value for you and supporting Audubon.
The most popular seeds and mixes are available for you to stock up for the rest of winter and into spring. Conewango Blend, unique to Audubon, was developed to attract favorite and common winter 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 your order, stop by the Nature Center, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours, or go to AudubonCNC.org and click on “Register for Upcoming Programs.” Members receive a 10 percent discount on birdseed purchases.
Pick-up at Audubon is 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 cheerfully load the fresh seed, direct from the supplier, right into your trunk. Call (716) 569-2345 ahead of time if you cannot pick up your order then.
As an additional bonus, wear your face covering and come into the Blue Heron Gift Shop that day and receive a 10% discount on all merchandise, including a wide assortment of bird feeders and bird houses.
Audubon’s own Conewango Blend is available year-round in the Blue Heron Gift Shop in the Nature Center and at Ashville General Store, Ashville, N.Y.; Howe’s True Value, Warren, Pa.; Lakewood Apothecary, Lakewood, N.Y.; Lighthouse Point Grocery, Mayville, N.Y.; Oneida Lumber ACE Hardware, Warren, Pa.; Russell Veterinary Hospital, Russell, Pa.; and Wegmans, Lakewood, N.Y.
Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa. The first floor of the Nature Center building, including the Blue Heron Gift Shop, live animals, and the 2020 Nature Photography Contest winning photographs, is open Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Because not all of the building is accessible, admission is by donation only.
You are welcome to visit the 600-acre nature preserve from dawn to dusk daily. While practicing safe social distancing measures, you can hike, snowshoe, or cross country ski the six miles of trails and view Liberty, Audubon’s non-releasable Bald Eagle.
