You can help resident birds stay healthy this winter
... and also support Boxerwood Nature Center!
2016 Bird Seed Sale
By late fall, birds migrating through Rockbridge and the area's own resident birds will find it harder and harder to find a reliable source of food as insects become inactive, seeds and berries scarce. And that's when the Rockbridge Bird Club, in cooperation with the Rockbridge Farmers Co-op, holds its annual Seed & Suet sale. It's a boon for the birds and also for Boxerwood, which receives 100% of the proceeds.
Help backyard birds survive the colder months by providing a reliable supplemental source of food!
