Friends of Martin Park is sponsoring its 16th annual birdseed sale to raise money for its organization, the private non-profit division of Martin Park Nature Center.
Seed is available in 25 and 50 pound bags. Varieties are black oil sunflower, thistle, sunflower heart, white millet and safflower seed. Suet cakes and two premium seed mixes formulated by Martin Park naturalist Neil Garrison are also available.
Seed has been formulated to attract a wide variety of birds including cardinals, goldfinch and siskins and nuthatchers.
Prices are $11 for a 25-pound bag of white millet to $51 for a 50-pound bag of sunflower hearts.
The birdseed sale helps support programming at Martin Park Nature Center. Past proceeds have helped underwrite portions of the park’s bird viewing wall, observation tower scope, gazebo and exhibits.
