Seed must be picked up Saturday, Feb. 29 between 10 a.m and noon at one of two locations: Plants Unlimited, 629 Commercial St. (Route 1) in Rockport or Lincoln County Publishing, 116 Mills Road, Newcastle. Specify on your order form where you will pick up your seed.

Five varieties will be offered this fall: Black oil sunflower seed, $16 for 20 pounds or $29 for 40 pounds; Sunflower meaties (hulled), $28 for 25 pounds or $47 for 50 pounds; Melody Mix, $14 for 20 pounds or $23 for 40 pounds; Thistle (Nyger), $10 for 5 pounds and Suet blocks, $2 each.

According to MCA President, Susan Schubel, “The Bird Seed Sale is an important fundraiser for the organization as all of our events are offered free to the public. Proceeds from this sale support our school and library feeder station program, speaker fees for our library programs, maintenance and repairs on our preserves, funds for our environmental education grants for teachers and birders, and more.”
