Chicago Audubon's 2018
Annual Birdseed Sale
Deadline for Ordering: Tuesday, October 2
Order Pickup Date at both Locations: Saturday, October 27
Pickup time at both locations: 9:00 a.m. to Noon
TO PLACE AN ORDER ONLINE, Click Here for Payment Page
(The Payment Page can also be printed out to use as an order form
if you prefer to pay by check. Whichever way you prefer,
remember, it is important to include your contact
phone number and your choice
of pickup location, both of which are described below.)
As you may know, the seed that you purchase through Chicago Audubon is much higher in quality than the seed available at grocery, pet, or discount stores. Also, forty percent of the total purchase price is tax deductible. This higher quality seed is excellent for the birds, and the proceeds from the Sale are a very important source of support for our ongoing educational efforts and projects. If you have never ordered seed this way before, please consider joining us this year—it’s great for the birds!
Nature House, 3100 West Grand Ave, Chicago. Nature House is one block north of Chicago Ave and one block east of Kedzie Ave. Go to the loading area behind the building. If you have problems locating this address, call Chris at 312-520-1266.

If you are mailing in your order, please make a copy of it first for your records as a precaution.
If you prefer to phone in your order using a credit card instead of using this website or filling out the form, please call our office at 773-539-6793. If you get the voice mail when you call, leave a message with your name and phone number (only) and the Administrator will return your call as soon as possible. Also, please note that every year, as a courtesy to our purchasers, everyone who has placed an order will be called a few days in advance of the pickup date to remind you of the upcoming date and time. If you are unable to pick up your order on October 27, please make arrangements for someone to pick it up for you and be sure that they know to be at your chosen pickup location before noon on October 27—this is very important. Please be sure to give a copy of your order to that person. If you have any questions about the ordering procedure, please do not hesitate to call our office (773- 539-6793). Thank you very much! We look forward to seeing you there! Remember, the deadline for ordering is October 2.

Change in Compass Delivery
One of Chicago Audubon Society’s (CAS) larger expenditures has been printing and mailing the bi-monthly Compass newsletter. In addition to the monetary cost, CAS is concerned about the cost to the environment of paper and the printing process. For those reasons, we no longer print and mail a hard copy of our newsletter. Instead, it will be delivered as a pdf via email to members of the Chicago Audubon Society Chapter for whom we have email addresses.
If you did not receive your copy of the most recent issue of the Compass, March-April 2018, it's because we don't have your email address. To receive future issues, please send your email address to [email protected]. And remember, as always, current and back issues of the Compass are available on this website, under the Newsletters tab.
Thank you for your continued support, and Good Birding to all!
The Third Annual
Chicago Audubon Spring Photo Contest
Winners will be posted soon.
The Chicago Audubon event, "Camping with the Birds," that was originally scheduled for May 11 and 12 had to be cancelled because the weather did not cooperate. Keep an eye on this website (chicagoaudubon.org) and on future issues of the Compass newsletter for news of possible rescheduling.
Congress is moving quickly to gut the Endangered Species Act, America’s strongest and most important law for protecting wildlife. Chicago Audubon stands with National Audubon against all efforts to weaken the Endangered Species Act.
