BIRD SEED SALE: Our annual bird seed sale fundraiser is underway. Last year, our proceeds helped purchase land to expand the Mason Farm Biological Preserve in Chapel Hill, provided scholarships to send area youth to summer nature camp, and funded the maintenance of our Wildlife Observation Platform at Jordan Lake, educational programs at local libraries, 6-8 public bird walks per month, and citizen science projects like our annual spring and Christmas bird counts. The ordering deadline is October 13, 2019. For more information or to place your order, please click or tap here.
