ENF Announces Fall Bird Seed Sale

Apple River, IL) The Eagle Nature Foundation is planning to hold their annual fund-raising bird seed sale on Nov. 2, 2013. The proceeds from this bird seed sale help the organization pay for its day to day operating expenses, as it works to protect bald eagle habitat, wherever in the nation it may be threatened; and the education of our youth, as well as the general public, about the perils that the bald eagle and other endangered species are facing. These species are all facing loss of habitat due to our human population expansion and our modern destructive agricultural farming practices that are destroying fence rows, woods, and ditches, and are killing the insects and birds with their constant onslaught of insecticides, herbicides and fungicides from the ground and the air. ENF feels that unless something is done to reduce these practices, Rachel Carson's silent spring may soon become a silent summer, fall and winter.

Persons interested in buying bird seed from ENF should contact ENF's office for an order form, listing the sizes, prices and varieties of seed that are available. These include black and striped sunflower, nyger thistle, safflower, wild bird, cracked and ear corn, peanuts and suet. Plan now to get the bird seeds you will need for all winter. Just return your order form before Oct. 27, so ENF will have the seeds you want on hand. Then on Nov. 5 come to 8384 North Broadway, Apple River, between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm to pick up your seeds.

Contact: ENF's office, 300 East Hickory, St., Apple River, IL 61001 or call 815-594-2306, or order the seed from ENF's website, and pay for the seed using PayPal. All orders must be postmarked by Oct. 27.
