Birdseed Sale

The Wild Center and our feathered friends invite you to participate in our annual Birdseed Sale. By purchasing high quality birdseed from The Wild Center, you provide the financial support for us to continue our educational programming and support our local wildlife. 

The time period for ordering bird seed for this year has now closed. Thank you for your support.

Pick-up Day is on Saturday, October 22nd between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. 

Our seed mixes have no filler, and come from Aspen Song Wild Bird Food, and are produced at a family-owned mill in Oneonta, NY.

For any questions about our seed sale contact Nick Corcoran at or at (518) 359-7800 ext. 140.

Pick Up Your Seed

Please pick up your order on Saturday, October 22nd between 10:00am and 4:00pm at The Wild Center.
