2016 Bird Seed Sale Announced

Audubon to sell bird seed to raise funds

Pre-order now through October 29

The Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society will be accepting bird seed pre-orders over the next two months to raise funds required to support programming throughout the region in 2017.  Orders are placed by mail-in form or by online store purchase at https://doas.us and then picked up by customers on Saturday, November 5 at the Walmart Parking Lot in Oneonta, NY.

A featured item of the sale is locally grown black oil sunflower seed, available in 30 lb. bags.  The seed is harvested from Wedgenock Farms in West Winfield on a 1200 acre property and supports critical local grassland bird habitat as well as local family farms.  In addition, the sale features products from Aspen Song, by way of Co-operative Feed Dealers (CFD) located in Conklin, NY, a company which sources and mixes much of their bird seed products from high quality regional suppliers.

According to DOAS Co-President, Susan O’Handley, “The Bird Seed Sale is an important fundraiser for the organization as most of our events are designed to run as break-even or free programs.  Proceeds from this sale help to provide support for a number of our activities including speaker fees for our public programs, maintenance and repairs at the sanctuary, hawkwatch expenses, funds for our environmental education grants for teachers and more.”

Also included in the annual sale is pre-orders for bird-friendly coffee – harvested from coffee plantations that are certified by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Institute to recognize that they meet rigorous standards for a product that is organic, fair trade and supports habitat biodiversity. “If you haven’t tried Birds and Beans coffee yet, this is a great opportunity to try a bag.  We place orders monthly for our members and friends so they can enjoy this product year-round and help protect our migratory birds at the same time”, continued O’Handley.

The pre-order sale runs through October 29 with orders picked up on November 5 – perfect timing for holiday gift giving for bird lovers!  For more information, contact Susan O’Handley, DOAS Co-President at 607-643-5680 or by email at sjohandley@gmail.com.
