2017 Bird Seed Sale Fundraiser for DOAS

Audubon to sell bird seed to raise funds

Pre-order now through October 28

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 2018.  Orders are placed by mail-in form or by online store purchase at https://doas.us/Store/Bird-Seed-Fundraiser and then picked up by customers on Saturday, November 4 at the Walmart Parking Lot in Oneonta, NY from 9am-11am.

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. Also included are purchase options for various and delicious blends of Bird-Friendly Coffee (certified by the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Institute (SMBI) as Fair Trade, Organic and Shade-Grown).  

The SMBI  works with growers on coffee plantation to meet rigorous standards for their products to support bio-diversity of habitat for our neo-tropical migrant songbird species.   “If you haven’t tried our bird-friendly 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.  

This year, the sale also includes DOAS Franklin Mountain Hawkwatch T-Shirts.

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.”

The pre-order sale runs through October 28 with orders picked up on November 4 – 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.
