Bird Seed Sale Order Form – 2019 

It’s that time of year again, time to order bird seed for this fall and winter. The colder months ahead are when our wild birds could use a helping hand the most. Fall is when our year-round resident and some seasonal bird species prepare for our oftentimes brutal Wisconsin winter. A few species, like Woodpeckers, Nuthatches and Jays begin caching seeds to serve as a food source when resources get harder to come by in nature. The seed we provide is gathered by these birds to build up their stock piles (caches) that help them get through the winter. Also, birds migrating through our area will benefit from an easy meal while they make a perilous journey to wintering grounds south of us. In addition, bird species that are (irruptive) and sometimes come to our area from the far north, like Pine Siskins, Crossbills and Redpolls, will take advantage of the seed that we provide.

This endeavor, (our annual bird seed sale) is our major money-raising project. The educational programs that we offer to the public free of charge are paid for with the funds that are raised. Orders for bird seed must be placed by Wednesday, October 9th. To do this, simply download and print the order form (2019 ORDER FORM). Than fill out the form and mail it, along with your check, to:

LAKELAND AUDUBON SOCIETY
P.O. Box 473
Elkhorn, WI  53121

Your order will be available for pickup between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 19th at Pesche’s Greenhouse, which is located 3 miles west of Lake Geneva on Highway 50.
