Seed Sale & Membership Drive - November 3

On Saturday, November 3, we will hold our annual seed sales at two locations: Garland’s on Park Street in Rutland from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and Blue Seal Feeds on Route 7 in Brandon, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We'll help you pick out the right seed to make your feathered friends happy and there is no sales tax. Checks or cash only please. No pre-order necessary.

Many of you have been loyally coming to our seed sales year after year. Thank you! We appreciate your support. The profits from our sales go to running our chapter. We try hard to keep our expenses down so we can spend more time protecting birds and less time fundraising.  

Another big thank-you to our seed sale hosts - Garland’s Agway in Rutland and Blue Seal Feeds in Brandon are vital supporters of Rutland Audubon. They forgo their seed sale profits for the day to give us this opportunity. We thank them and hope you will give them other business in recognition of their contribution.

The seed sale is also a good time to join our chapter. You can get your fall seed from us at whichever location is best for you. Along with supporting our efforts you will be feeding the birds during winter, their most vulnerable time. While you are there, bring us a bird story or question. We love talking about the birds! 




seed sale and membership drive: thank you!

Thank you to all for making our annual seed sale and membership drive a success! Birds will be flocking to feeders around the county because of the hard work of our sponsors, Blue Seal Feeds in Brandon and Garland’s in Rutland, and all the volunteers who donated their Saturday morning to fill orders and lug bags of seed.

And welcome new members! If you haven’t already done so, take a look around our website to see what we do. We hope to see you at an event soon! You can also find us on Flickr and Facebook by typing in Rutland County Audubon.

A special thank you to board member Renee Warren for promoting Audubon and bringing in eight new members. 


seed sale and membership drive – November 10

Pine SiskinNoticing more activity at your feeders recently? Pine Siskins are hitting the area in big numbers. There are welcome reports of Evening Grosbeaks, too, as well as more Purple Finches. The arrival of these species, along with the “regulars” means it’s time to stock up on bird seed. 

Just in time, Rutland County Audubon will hold its annual Seed Sale and Membership Drive on Saturday, November 10, from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. 

This is a great opportunity to support RCAS by buying seed, engaging in some birding banter, and signing up for a membership if you haven’t joined us yet. Incentive for new memberships is a free birdhouse! 

There will be two convenient locations – Blue Seal Feeds in Brandon on Union Street and Garland’s Agway on Park Street in Rutland.
