Jamestown, NY – Last month Wegmans and the Audubon Center & Sanctuary began a partnership that promises to be good for both wildlife and nature education.
Conewango Blend, Audubon’s own blend of birdseed, is now available in 10-pound bags at Wegmans.
“We’re projecting a 50% increase in our birdseed sales,” said Audubon President Ruth Lundin. “With all proceeds benefitting our programs, exhibits, buildings and grounds, purchasing Conewango Blend is a tremendous way to support nature education for all ages.”
Created by a team of local birders, Conewango Blend is carefully balanced to attract the broadest variety of birds with the least waste. It is heavy on black oil sunflower seeds to entice the friendly Chickadees, colorful Cardinals and acrobatic Titmice. It has canary seed for the finches and millet for the soft-spoken Mourning Doves. Blue Jays will enjoy the peanut pieces.
