“The bird seed sale is an important fundraiser for the organization as all of our events are offered free to the public,” said Mid-Coast Audubon President Susan Schubel. “Proceeds from this sale help to provide support for a number of our activities including speaker fees for our public programs, maintenance, and repairs of our preserves, funds for our environmental education grants for teachers and birders, and more.”
